One of the reasons it is so important is because the guide is extremely large, and if you want to use it effectively then having prior awareness of how it works is going to help you out in the long run, besides, given the guide is like almost a Page 1

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 megabyte of plain text you'll likely be forced to read this while your browser is loading it anyway. First let's start off with the issue of "Spoiler-free guide." Contained in this guide are two things, first what you have is the walkthrough: The walkthrough is a full detailed paragraph form walkthrough for basically all areas, items and stuff you'll want to find in the game. It does NOT include story descriptions or anything like that, it does not contain spoilers in that sense. Now beyond that you should note the other inclusion: in the boss guide which is a condensed collection of strategies for every boss in the game one after another, in between each boss there is a very short point form guide for exactly what you need to get from place to place through the entire game. All boss names and descriptions in the boss guide has been censored, basically the boss guide doubles as an "ultra spoiler-free to the most extreme extent" guide which will help people who don't know where to go and little else. Unlike the main walkthrough it will not cover every nook and cranny, it's designed solely so you can play the game totally by yourself and get a boost of help if you just don't know where to go, or just can't beat a boss. I have received numerous emails from people requesting specific boss sections, so this is my answer to them and attempt to at least give the section some purpose, I believe it turned out quite well actually. What else do we have? Well you should know that this guide does not contain the kindergarden basics of the game "How do I junction?" "How do I attack?" "How do I move?" Final fantasy VIII includes a very helpful tutorial which is always available right in your menu and will show you however everything works right there in the context of your menu far better than any guide could, so utilize the help there whenever you forget how the magic system works. Lastly I would like to say a few things about one new inclusion I have added, the game encyclopedia. The encyclopedia is there for a couple Page 2

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 of reasons. The first is because the story can get quite confusing at times and you might not exactly understand what the hell something is that they're talking about, or who this guy is. Note that like the plot summary, the game encyclopedia is NOT spoiler-free at all, it is totally separate from the walkthrough and you will not find spoilers unless you go looking for them. The second reason the guide includes the game encyclopedia is quite simple: as you may know, summer has all but arrived and sometimes on a nice hot 30 degree (Celsius) day like today, I would prefer to sit out in the backyard with my laptop in the shade. I can't exactly work on the walkthrough while sitting outside, but with the game encyclopedia, I can take the knowledge I have about game terms, make up a list and spend some putting it all together. Actually it's quite enjoyable ;) I believe that's everything covered for the introduction, I sincerely hope you enjoy this guide for Final Fantasy VIII, feel free to email me about anything.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 don't get anything for it, and it's a lot more fun to just go around and explore on your own without constant dialogue. Continue right down the hall and speak to the man on the way there, he'll give you seven cards. You can learn for about the card game in the Triple Triad section. Ride the elevator down and descend the stairs, that odd looking blue and yellow sphere is a save point and you can use it to save your game. Now head right to the next screen, turn right again at the first path you come to, this is the library. Examine the bookshelf above you, near the edge to find 'Occult Fan I.' There's also a draw point in here at the top if you're interested, draw points in this game allow you to store magic which you can use and junction. When you're ready to leave, return to the main area where you came down the elevator and head down. On your way out you'll find a craw point for Cure on the left. On the world map you'll find the Fire Cavern located directly East of the Garden, however you may want to do some leveling first and get some new GF abilities. Make sure to junction both Squall and Quistis each with one of the GFs and head for the nearby shore. On the shore you will fight the Fastitocalon enemy which is easily the best source of AP at this point in the game and for awhile to come. Summon the Quakazotl GF over and over as they are weak to the damage, you can level up quite well here doing that. When you enter the first battle on the grassy area, you'll be given a quick tutorial on the Gunblade. When Squall attacks if you press the R1 button just as he strikes you will always get a critical hit, this is painfully easy to do and with a little practice your success rate will easily approach 100%. Whenever you're ready, make your way to the Fire Cavern and go inside to begin your preliminary test. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Fire Cavern | (00002) \----------------------------------------------------o Page 12

Ten | | minutes will give you more than enough time, o------------------------------o even then you'll probably be waiting around. The path in the cavern is actually quite linear, it's just a straight line to the boss. Along the way after a couple of screens be sure to head down the path on the right to find a Fire draw point. Continue up a couple more screens until you reach the boss.

The opposite element to fire is ice | | so in this battle, ice magic is going to be the key to victory. What you | | should be using are spells like Blizzard and summoning Shiva as much as | | possible. Note that Ifrit has Cure magic on him so whenever Page 13

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 you need to | | heal simply use the draw command and then cast Cure on either of your | | party members. Ifrit has a couple of basic attacks. First of all he | | will cast the Fire spell on your party quite often which only deals around | | 50 damage so you should be able to survive against this easily. After the | | boss has taken a certain amount of damage he will change his tactic and | | begin using a new type of attack. The jumping body check will hit one of | | your party members for about 150 damage which can be dangerous if you're | | hit more than once so if this occurs be sure to heal up quickly after. | | Now here's something to keep in mind, the time limit you have does not | | include leaving the cave, meaning that you shouldn't be worried about | | leaving time for you to escape after the battle is over. In fact your | | upcoming SeeD rank is actually influenced more positively the LESS time | | you have on the clock when you defeat Ifrit, meaning ideally you should | | get his health down as low as possible and then strike the final blow | | when the timer is at about ten seconds or so. It won't make a huge | | difference, and once you receive your rank it's only the basic level, | | to can upgrade it anyway, but it's nice to start off high. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o It's time now to leave the Fire Cavern and return to Balamb Garden. If you haven't already by now it would be a good idea to head to the shoreline and fight enemies until Shiva learns the I Mag-RF ability. Using this you can take all the many Fish Fin items you will inevitably pick up from those battles and convert each of them into 20 Water magic, doing this will allow you to easily obtain 100 Water magic for both Squall and Quistis and when you junction all those spells to something like your strength, it really gives it an enormous boost. After this your next destination is Balamb Garden again. Page 14

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 don't actually talk to anybody while you're here unless you cannot proceed without doing so, that's the first thing to note. The rest will follow when necessary during this section of the guide. Climb the stairs at the start and use the save point at the top. There are a few scripted battles here as you head up, just normal soldiers that are extremely easy to defeat, especially if you junctioned 100 Water spells to your strength. Once you reach the town square and Seifer tells you to go and scout for enemies head up the path to the upper right and you'll find a soldier hiding behind a car. Speak to Seifer after this and then just stand around waiting. Approach Seifer when the camera angle changes and then follow him to the next screen and across the bridge. As you climb the stairs you'll encounter a miniboss battle against the Anacondaur. It's pretty much just a normal enemy with more HP, so don't worry about it. Continue up until another scene triggers. After the scene do not approach the cliff, instead go around to the right and down to the bottom via the safe path, it'll earn you more points in the end. Enter the communications tower and use the draw point for Blind on the left side. Be sure to save your game and junction everyone before you ride the elevator.

He looks like a | | normal Elite Soldier but he boasts quite a bit more power and hit points. | | Biggs carries the Esuna spell which junctions quite well at this point | | in the game and junctions extremely well later in the game when you have | | access to junctioning magic to your status defense. Hit Biggs with your | | most powerful attacks, it doesn't take much, once again having the Water | | spell junctioned to your strength is quite helpful. Biggs' attacks are | | very similar to the Elite Soldiers', he'll raises his are and clothes| | line one of your characters for moderate damage. After he has taken about | | 300 damage Wedge will join the battle. At this point your should just | | focus on finishing off Biggs. Wedge too, like a normal soldiers has most | | of the basic attacks. These two are more like a miniboss than anything | | else. You actually shouldn't even have to attack Wedge at all, once | | Biggs' HP has been depleted, something occurs and the real battle begins. | | Page 17

Elvoret has quite a | | lot of hit points and good strength to back it up, certainly the first | | boss fight in the game that provides any challenge at all. Elvoret will | | use a normal claw attack that deals roughly 100-150 damage to a single | | character. It is good to note that you can draw the Cure spell from | | Elvoret, so if anyone is hurt simply draw-cast the Cure spell directly | | from Elvoret to make things easier. Have your party attack and use | | limit breaks if they get the, In order to use a limit break you need to | Page 18

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | have the character to the point where their health appears in yellow | | (not a "requirement" per se, but rarely occurs otherwise.) When their | | HP is in yellow there's a random chance that increases the lower their | | current HP gets that you'll hear a noise and see a flashing arrow beside | | the attack command. In this circumstance hold right and use the limit | | break. Just so you know, Squall's Renzokuken executed perfectly with | | Water junction on strength can deal more than 1500 damage. Back to the | | actual battle again, by far Elvoret's most dangerous attack is the | | kind of tornado breath he uses that deals almost 180 damage to every | | member of your party.

First of all let's look at the boss' various attacks, as it | | has quite a few of them. There are two normal attacks, one where the boss | | grabs you and deal damage, the other where it kind of fires a projectile | | from its leg. These only hit one person and don't amount to much at all. | | The next more dangerous one does about the same damage, but to your | | entire party, the boss knocks you backward, but still no big deal. The | | most dangerous attack you need to watch out for is the Ray-Bomb where the | | boss fires a beam that will send you into the air and deal about 100 | | damage to everyone, somewhat painful but still barely half as bad as | | Elvoret's most powerful attack. This boss' strengths don't lie in its | | attacks but rather in its whoppingly huge hit point total, luckily you | | aren't actually supposed to kill this boss. Once you've done about 1500 | | damage the boss will fall to the ground and begin to repair itself. At | | this point it becomes possible (and pretty much required) to hold L2+R2 | | to escape from the battle. In order to deal that required 1500 damage | | easily all you need to do is summon Quezacotl once or twice and the boss | | will go down. Now here's an interesting fun fact, it IS possible (albeit | | very difficult) to kill this boss. Note that speed is a requirement | | since it will eventually repair itself, you must destroy the boss before | | this happens and there's only one way to do this. You'll need a character | | with Quezacotl junction and 100 Water junctioned to their magic stat. | Page 20

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Quezacotl needs to know Boost, for sure, as well as SumMag+10%, SumMag+20% | | and hopefully even SumMag+30%. You will also want the highest possible | | compatibility you're willing to work for so the person can do the | | summoning quickly since like I said, speed is important. Your reward for | | defeating the boss is a whopping 50 AP for all your guardian forces, that | | reward is quite decent for the work it takes to actually prepare to | | beat the thing. Either way it still doesn't stop it from chasing you, | | which is actually kind of nice because it makes it possible to defeat the | | boss multiple times (I'm not 100% on that point however.) | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Once the battle is over start running right and the thing will chase you again. On the next screen after where Selphie jumped over the cliff try to run along the upper part of this path so when the robot spider jumps it'll jump right over you. Further on, run down through the next screen, then on the one after than when you reach the bottom of the stairs hold the triangle button to start walking rather than running, this will allow you to remain upright when the boss jumps down from above and then keep running down to avoid the fight. Lastly you'll find yourself on the bridge. When the boss jumps over you, you can try to run in the other direction and try to pickle your way across, however I'm not even sure if it's possible to avoid this fight at all. Regardless of whether you fight or not, when you get to the right side of the bridge you'll be back in the central square once again. Speak with the dog quickly as you run down to get it out of the way for bonus points. As you keep running down there will be an opportunity to enter the bar and avoid the spider, do NOT take this opportunity or you will lose massive points. Other than that it's just a linear path back to the beach where you get to see a big cutscene and escape from Dollet Page 21

Walk left toward

where everyone is waiting and there for awhile, eventually walk in with an announcement,

probably have to speak with Zell once first to make them actually show up. After the event speak with Headmaster Cid and he'll give you a 'Battle Meter.' Return to the second floor and go left for yet another scene with Seifer. Following this you are given your SeeD rank and sent back to your room. Enter your room and change into the SeeD uniform, then save your game and leave. When Selphie asks you to join the Garden Festival Committee you might as well, you don't really have to do any work for it. Once the whole dance thing is over and you're back in your room again, change into your normal clothes and head for the Training Center which is down and two paths right of the dormitory. Head up into the Training Center and make a right when you come to a fork. What Quistis said before coming in here was actually quite important, you're probably going to encounter an enemy in here called a T-Rexaur which is a super powerful enemy. While it's normal to just run away every time, here's how to beat it. First get into Page 22

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 a fight with the more common enemy in this area, you can Draw Sleep magic from this enemy. Draw 100 Sleeps and then junction the Siren GF which should allow you to use ST-Atk-J. Put Siren on Squall and put the 100 Sleeps on ST-Atk-J. Now junction Quistis with the Shiva GF. The T-Rexaur has a rather large weakness to ice, not only that the casting of a Guardian Force will not wake an enemy up. So the idea is this, have Squall attack which should put the T-Rexaur to sleep 90% of the time, also have Quistis casting Shiva on each one of her turns. Doing this should practically eliminate the enemy's ability to get any turns at all and by the end, hopefully you can win the battle. Back to the actual game, continue up the path to a draw point which contains Blizzard. Continue left and save your game before going up to the supposed secret area. After the scene save your game once again. This time return to the entrance via the left path. When you arrive you'll find a rather unfortunate scene.

The boss only really has one single attack, | | it kicks the little Raldo things at your party for about 30 damage. | | Sometimes when it gets angry it will lift the things off the ground and | | drop them on a single member of your party for about 50 damage. You may | | notice this does not fit the example of a what bosses in a game normally | | do, and this is of course "get progressively harder." Instead this boss | | opts to actually be easier than the previous bosses you faced, so all you | | really need to do is attack or start summoning some Guardian Forces in | | here. To add more insult to injury in the boss' case he is very | | susceptible to Sleep attacks meaning if you've got Sleep junctioned on | | your weapon or if you just simply cast a sleep spell then you can | | pretty much keep the boss dozing for the entire battle which is kind of | | nice. The Raldo enemies don't actually attack on their own so while the | | main boss is asleep you can do pretty much anything you want without | | fear of being attacked. Note that one single Renzokuken can kill this | Page 24

Once the boss is dead then the Raldo enemies will | | start attacking, they're actually far harder than the boss since their | | normal attack does as much as Grenaldo's stronger attack and since there | | are three of them, they attack three times per turn. Ouch. It still | | only takes a single summoning of Quezacotl to take them out though. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Exit the Training Center and return to your dorm room. In the morning when you wake up, examine the table in the corner of your room to get 'Weapons Mon Apr.' Save your game and then head for the front gate of the Garden. Now if you're interested in the card game (which you should be since it can yield some of the best items in the game) then use the save point at the bottom of the stairs. Every 30 seconds or so a little boy in a blue shirt will run by going from left to right, run up to the kid and challenge him to a card game. Eventually he will play the 'MiniMog Card' which is extremely rare. Now let's head up the elevator to Quistis' classroom. You'll find a number of girls there called Trepe Groupie, it doesn't matter which one you play, all of them have the ability to use the 'Quistis Card,' one of the best cards in the game, but once you've won it from one of them you can't win it from any of the others. Now that you've got these it's time to leave the grounds and head for the exit. Along the way a scene triggers. After all is said and done speak with Headmaster Cid again and he'll give you the 'Magical Lamp.' Leave the Garden and head for the world map. Now save your game and prepare to fight an optional boss if you wish to do so. That Magical Lamp Cid gave you can be used on the world map to summon a new Guardian Force however you must first fight the GF before it will join your team, so once again, save your game.

You have to understand how powerful gravity magic can be, and if | | you don't then Diablos is going to show you whether you like it or not. | | Diablos has three main attacks that it uses. A normal physical attack | | that deals just over 200 damage, this is his most dangerous attack by | | far and you're going to be very relieved to know that he rarely uses it | | for reasons explained soon. His second attack is the Demi spell which | | is a basic gravity spell that shouldn't do much damage to your party at | | all. The most powerful spell Diablos has is of course the Gravija which | | takes approximately 75% of the HP off of everyone, but again, like Demi | | this is a gravity based attack meaning that even if you only have one | | hit point, it cannot kill you. That's what makes the normal attacks so | | dangerous, it's the only attack he has that can actually kill you, the | | rest are just for severely weakening you. The two most important | | characters in this battle are Squall and Selphie, it really doesn't matter | | what you do with Zell. Squall should have 100 Water magic junctioned to | Page 26

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | his weapon, and if you still don't have that yet you can simply run down | | to the shore right now and fight a couple battles to get five Fish Fin | | items and refine them. With this, his Renzokuken limit break will be | | extremely powerful. Couple this with that fact that gravity magic can | | only weaken you, not kill you, and there should be quite a few | | opportunities to use your limit break. Basically the tactic is, while | | Diablos is casting his magic you should draw and cast Demi on him which | | will deal over 1000 damage at the start but get gradually weaker. Also | | note that using draw on Diablos fails quite often. Next, when he has used | | Gravija and your characters' HP is in the yellow, cycle through until | | Squall's limit comes up and then use that on the boss. During this time | | (while Rough Divide is going is best) you should have Selphie's limit. | | Keep using Do Over until you find the Full-Cure spell in there, it isn't | | too rare. This will fully restore your party to max and you can start the | | cycle all over again. Doing this should give you the edge you need. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Give your new Guardian Force a name.

The basic rule of the

is that the more rules there are, the harder the game. You don't WANT to pass new rules around, so here's how to avoid it. When you ask Watts to play cards he'll ask if you want to play with both region's rules, select no and speak to him again, he'll ask you again. Keep doing this over and over and eventually he'll just ask "Do you want to play Page 30

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 cards?" Agree to this and now you won't spread any new rules around (the same rules of this region still apply though.) Every single person in the game who plays cards will eventually stop asking if you keep refusing like this, always remember that. Most of the time on the very first game, Watts will play the 'Angelo Card.' Be sure to pick it up. After the card game climb the stairs above you and save your game using the save point on the left. Continue up to the next screen and go into the room. After speaking with the girl return to where your party was and follow them into the meeting room. When the meeting is over return to Rinoa's room once again, there you will find 'Pet Pals Vol.2' sitting on the couch. Save your game and then speak to Watts. You start out on top of the train. Run left and follow Rinoa across. Once you jump to the next train that marks the start of the five minute timer. Keep running left over top of the soldiers below. Soon enough it will be time to drop down and enter the codes. Press down on the D-pad to drop down and Rinoa will feed you the code, keep an eye on the number pattern thing so you know which buttons to press, you can also press L1 to look to your left. If you're quick you can input all three of the codes before you are caught, even though Zell will warn you about the blue guard on the second code, you can still get all three. I would still recommend going up after the second one if you aren't sure however. Once you've entered the code watch the scene, then get ready to do it again. On this next one enter the first two codes then go up until the two guards have passed by. Drop down after that and you'll have more than enough time to enter the next three codes. Another scene follows and if you managed to do this without screwing up, your SeeD rank will increase by one. Head up and save your game before speaking to Rinoa, tell her you're ready to begin (be sure you've junctioned everyone accordingly, keep in mind Zell and Selphie will be completely empty even if they had stuff before.) Enter the president's train car and prepare yourself. Page 31

The Fake President falls to the floor when defeated, only | | to spring up and transform into this disgusting beast. Gerogero can | | use some very nasty status attacks. First, Gerogero will use kind of | | a vomit spew to inflict darkness on one of your characters. When someone | | is under the darkness status, they will have a severe reduction in their | | ability to hit the enemy with normal physical attacks. Other status | | related attacks the boss uses include the two spells Silence and Berserk | | which will disable the use of magic with one character and make one | | character only able to physically attack every turn respectively. Here's | | how to deal with any of these occurrences, all you have to do is use the | | draw command on the boss and cast his Esuna spell on whichever character | | has been affected, since Esuna will remove any abnormal status effect, | | not just one in particular. His final attack is an arm swipe that deals | | nearly 200 damage to a single character and can be quite dangerous. | | Let's talk about how to actually defeat this boss, there are a couple ways | | of doing it. If you have any Wizard Stones you can refine perhaps just | | one of them into some Firaga magic and really exploit his weakness to | | fire, but this is still the far more complicated way. Note that this | | boss carries the undead property, meaning that not only is he weak to | | holy based magic but also to cure based magic. If you cast Page 33

Go into the pub and speak to the man by the back door, choose to tell him about the card and he'll let you keep it, giving you a 'Tonberry Card' as well. Proceed into the back alley and save your game. Continue left and quite a long scene occurs. It pretty much doesn't end until you're downstairs in the old lady's house. Before you leave she'll give you a 'Potion,' 'Phoenix Down,' 'Soft,' 'Antidote' and 'Remedy' to take with you. Leave the house and go right. Continue right after speaking with Zone and cross the bridge to get to the train platform. Board the train and you're off. Speak to everyone on the train and you'll be dropped off at the East Academy Station. Across the bridge and Northwest of the station is a forest between two mountain sides, end the forest and watch the scene. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Laguna | (00009) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o Use the Sleep | | the fork.

Climb the stairs at the top of this area and follow the linear walkway across into the next area. When you reach a save point go up from there until a scene triggers. You'll fight against some cyborg soldiers which are stronger than the normal soldiers however a simple cast of Quezacotl which exploits their weakness to Thunder will really clean their clocks. After the second battle the scene continues and you're back with your party once again. Leave the forest and make tracks for Galbadia Garden. Keep in mind that since Selphie and Quistis were technically Kiros and Ward in the fantasy, both of them have the one remaining HP from when the party was hit by Soul Crush so careful if you go into battle. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Galbadia Garden | (0000A) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o speak to your | | Just into the | None...................... / | point on the | | beam of yellow o------------------------------o centre of this

First | | of all, Sacred is pretty much the same as he was in the previous | | battle. He'll use his normal attack every single turn and heal HP while | | doing it. It's the Minotaur who provides the real challenge in this | | battle. He has a normal attack just like Sacred does that deals about | | the same amount of damage. He also has an attack called Mower, which | | pretty much "mowers" across you party and deals normal attack damage to | | everyone in your party. This is all well and good, in fact the fight | | would be easy if that's all it was, but that's not all it is. The | | Brothers are able to use a special combination attack called Mad Cow. | | This attack is basically an earthquake attack that will shake the ground | | violently and deal serious damage to everyone in your party, about 400 | | damage to every one of them. If you're not prepared then this attack | | will totally wipe you out. Here's what you need to do to stay alive and | Page 42

Cast it | | on all three of your party members and it will pretty much last the entire | | battle, cutting all physical damage you take in half. Now here's where | | you hope you were able to stock a lot of those Float spells. It's best | | if you distribute them among your party so you can cast it quickly. Use | | Float on everyone in your party, this will make it so the earthquake | | spell Mad Cow can't even touch your party members and you take no | | damage. As if this wasn't nice enough, cast Float on both Sacred and | | Minotaur. Their ability to heal comes from some kind of bond with the | | Earth so when they are separated from it (floating in the air) that | | healing ability disappears and you are free to start smashing. When they | | are no longer healing, simply a couple casts of both Shiva and Quezacotl | | each should be enough to eliminate both of them simultaneously. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o For defeating the to Brothers you now get the ability to junction and use them as a Guardian Force.

A scene with General Caraway follows, just stick behind him wherever he goes. After his explanation you've got time to go do whatever you wish. When you're prepared to begin the operation then return to General Caraway's house, save your game, and go inside. After the scene, leave the house and follow General Caraway once again. When you have control of Quistis at the gateway aferward head right down the path behind the tree and return to Caraway's house. After the scene you'll have control of Rinoa. Up at the top right you'll find an entrance to the sewer. Choose to climb down and head left for a few screens until you find the magazine 'Weapons Mon Mar.' Climb out of the sewer once again and save your game. Now start making your up those crates toward the top and jump across to the walkway. On the next screen there is a ladder on your left and you can get up from there. Another scene triggers after this and lasts until you're back at Caraway's Mansion again with Quistis' party. Examine the wine glasses on the left side of the room to take one, then go to the upper left corner and place it in the hands of the statue. Leave the room and save your game. Head down into the sewer and climb over top of the water wheel. Examine the bars to go through the door and a cutscene triggers when you do. You'll now have control of Squall, move right and navigate between the people, through the parade and into the building. You'll find yourself once again here, the same place Rinoa was before. Make sure Squall and Irvine are junctioned properly. Climb up the crates and up to the top where you'll find Rinoa and the lizards.

Go down through it and pick up the sniper rifle. After the scene you'll have control of Quistis again. Head up and go through the gate. Cross the bridge and then go left through this gate as well. Try to climb the ladder and it falls over. Cross the ladder bridge to the other side and continue left. Use the Esuna draw point here and then head back across the ladder bridge. Make your way left through the gate, then up through the next one. Continue up to the next screen with the water wheel and head right, through the gate. When you reach the next water wheel if you go down and left you can find a draw point with Zombie in it. Head back and jump across the water wheel, then across the one on the other side. Now head down through the gate. Jump across the water wheel here and continue down. Jump across the water wheel yet again and head down for a third time. Drop the ladder down at the bottom and head right. Jump across this water wheel and run up to find the save point. Climb up the ladder above the save point, past the first floor and high up to the second floor. There's a quick scene here and then you need to hit the switch. From here it's beyond your control.

Of course there is one surefire way | | of standing up to these spells and it's the same tactic you used for the | | previous battle, summoning Carbuncle and having Reflect on your entire | | party will ease the difficulty significantly. Edea in one respect is | | unlike Seifer, she will not cast powerful magic and do harm to herself, | | instead she will use the Dispel spell over and over, What Dispel does is | | remove the Reflect status from a party member. Fortunately there is | | still one good thing about this, since Dispel only targets one person at | | a time she will waste three turns Dispel-ing your entire party after | | which you can simply summon Carbuncle again, all the while attacking her | | with your most powerful GFs and physicals.

This fight is somewhat similar to the | | fight with Diablos. The robots have an attack designed to be quite | | powerful and able to weaken you called Micro Missiles. Micro Missiles | | can't ever actually kill you, instead what it does is take off half of | | your current HP, so even if your party is really strong this attack is | | still going to hurt you. After using Micro Missiles the enemies will | | rely on their fast speed and moderately powerful physical attacks to | | knock off whatever remaining HP you have left which is why it is very | | important to heal in this battle. They use their physical attacks a lot | Page 54

To eliminate | | these enemies I prefer to just let Micro Missiles take Squall's HP down a | | bit and then just blow them away with Renzokuken, but considering their | | weakness to thunder magic, a Boosted Quezacotl can work just as well. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Watch the quick scene with Irvine and then leave the room through the exit that leads outside. Start crossing the bridge to trigger a cutscene. Keep crossing afterward and get ready to move! While hanging onto the ledge hold diagonal up-right to shimmy along the side. It's quite easy if you're holding it the whole time but if you stop for some reason, you'll probably end up with a game over. There's another scene after you finish this. You need to choose a party, just as a quick note, choose your more preferred party to go with Squall, you'll be using that party more frequently than the other. When you get out of the car go left past the U shaped bars and get onto the train. When you have control of the car on the world map, you can reach the Missile Base by going Northeast a bit then turning and driving directly West. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Missile Base | (0000G) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o Missile Base head | | There's a | None...................... / | of you and | | Examine the panel o------------------------------o open the one on

Speak to the two men and take the lower left exit beside the stairs. You'll find a draw point here containing Blind and a couple of guards standing around minding their own business. Speak to the guard standing on the left of the other one. After speaking with him go back up one screen, then through the door leading up. Speak to the man at the top and tell him the other crew says to go on ahead. After speaking with him return to the other crew and give them the news. Return once again back to the room being guarded by the soldier who commented on your walking style. Talk to him to get him to leave his position. Examine the control panel in the room and just hit whatever. Once the lights are out, leave the room. Try to talk your way out of the situation by telling them you were just about to go make the call. Go back down the stairs again and approach the door. When the guy comes out, agree to give him a hand with the thing. Check the left part of this room beside one of the large missile silos to find an invisible draw point for Full-Life. Now get in between the two guys and then tap square repeatedly to move the launcher. Finally leave this room and examine the computer terminal on the right side of the door. Choose the Target option and then set error ratio. Next choose data upload and then exit the program. After this head upstairs and it's time to cause a ruckus.

I'll assume you chose the ten minute timer, | | so even if you didn't, obviously a strategy that will kill the boss | | quickly will benefit you anyway. In terms of offense, the boss has all | | the bases covered. In fact this is the first boss with an attack that | | has quite a good chance of killing you even at full HP, so Guardian | | Forces with HP Junction ability are going to help out quite a bit. | | Believe it or not the boss only has two attacks. The first is a physical | | blast of gunfire to a single character which deals about 200 300 damage. | | This is the attack you're going to see most often so it's a good idea | | to do what you can to lessen the damage. The boss is stocked with the | | Protect spell which will reduce the damage taken from the gunshot attack | | by 50%. Draw and cast it on all your characters at the beginning of the | | battle. If you chose ten minutes doing this is optional, as it does | | admittedly waste a turn. The next attack the boss has is the Page 59

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 much more | | dangerous one. The boss will use a single turn to prepare for the beam | | cannon and then let loose on the next one. The beam cannon does about | | 900 damage to a single character and cannot be weakened by either the | | Protect or Shell spells the boss is carrying. From this point on, the | | boss will no longer announce the Beam Cannon, it will just fire the | | cannon peridoically. As for killing the boss quickly and efficiently, | | this job falls solely in the capable hands of the Quezacotl Guardian | | Force which is so much more effective than anything else, with the | | possible exception of limit breaks. You're not going to have time to | | be summoning GFs with all of your characters, so assign your most | | powerful magic user to be the summoner of Quezacotl, and the reamaining | | two characters should just focus on using physical attacks enhanced by | | junctioned magic for the entire battle. Boost is the most important | | ability to have for Quezacotl followed by SumMag+10% and the ones that | | follow, you're going to want to be able to deal more than 1000 damage | | per cast. The boss has 6000 HP approximately and for every 1000 damage | | dealt, one of the six pods on its head will explode. When the boss | | gets down to two pods it will use the powerful Beam Cannon on EVERY | | turn, totally obliterating your party. At this point it doesn't matter | | how bad the idea sounds, you need to go on an all out offensive and take | | the boss down as quickly as possible. If you're looking for a way to | | effectively survive as long as possible, note that Siren L Mag-RF | | ability combined with Tents, Cottages and Wizard Stones should provide | | a good deal of Curaga spells which will boost your hit point total to | | the 3000-4000 range. After the boss has been defeated, three more | | soldiers pop out, but a single GF cast should eliminate those guys. | | | o--------------------------------------------------------------Page 60

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 and ride it down. When the elevator stops, speak to your party, examine the control, then examine the panel in the floor. Climb down the elevator shaft to the bottom. When you have control again it might be a good idea to junction fire to your Elem-Atk for someone, most of the enemies in this area are weak to it including the upcoming bosses. Follow the pipe up and around to the ladder. Go through the lower left door at the bottom and grab hold of the handle. In order to open if you have to keep tapping the square button over and over again, the first time you try it's extremely hard to do, it's probably not even worth trying. Wait until one of your party members is giving you a hand with it before trying for real. Once the handle is turned and you leave the room you can keep climbing down. On the other side of this large pillar there's a ladder to climb. Say that wel have no choice, let's go. When you land, examine the computer control panel. Climb back down the ladder to join up with your party again. At the lower left part of this screen there's a flashing green button and yet another ladder leading down. You'll find a save point at the bottom which is definitely worth using. Pull the switch beside the save point and then head up to trigger a boss fight.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | There are two Oilboyles to fight here, which shouldn't be too much of a | | problem provided you are adequately prepared. The Oilboyles have three | | attacks. The first is of course a normal physical attack that deals | | moderate damage to a single party member and can be weakened by the | | Protect spell (which you would have to cast yourself since neither of them | | have it available to draw.) The next attack is probably the most | | dangerous, the Sonic Wave, because it hits your entire party. The damage | | will usually range anywhere between 300 - 500 damage to everyone. Lastly | | the boss has the ability to shoot oil at you which does more damage than | | any other attack, between 600 - 800 damage, and can inflict the Darkness | | status on a character. It's a good thing the boss carries the Esuna | | spell, if any of your characters gets inflicted with Darkness simply | | draw-cast the Esuna spell to remove the ailment. This does not apply to | | Squall however, Squall automatically has 255% accuracy right from the | | beginning of the game, which basically means it's a physical impossibility | | for him to actually miss, the Darkness status has no effect on him. Once | | you've taken enough damage to bring your HP down to dangerous levels don't | | waste your own magic or items, simply draw-cast the Cura spell from | | either of the Oilboyles whenever you need to use it. Now as for offensive | | tactics, the most important thing to keep in mind is that the bosses both | | have a very severe weakness to fire. You can junction fire magic to your | | Elem-Atk to really raise the damage you can deal with a physical attack, | | but by far the most effective way to deal with this fight is just | | junctioning Ifrit and Boosting it, with the help of SumMag+10/20/30% | | you're looking at damage in the multi-thousands. Not only that it hits | | both of them, so really this battle could be easily ended in Page 64

Approach the control panel and begin pressing buttons to trigger a scene. Once everything has happened, speak with Cid and agree to go check up on the others. On the second floor, run to the end of the hall and go out the door at the end. Watch the cutscene when you get out there, then return back inside. With that you need to return once again to the bridge upstairs. After the scene you'll find yourself back in your room again. Save your game and head for the front hall. Here you will be approached by one of the robed men, now just ride the elevator down to the basement and watch the scene.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01

| Holy.....Immune | and holy | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | The beginning of the fight is easy as long as you've got at least one | | person with a decent strength physical attack, that person is probably | | going to be Squall. Here's how the battle works at the beginning. The | | two orbs, left and right, have three different colour states: Blue, | | yellow and red. They start off as blue and gradually move toward red. | | In red state they are capable of casting powerful magic and doing | | a good deal of damage to your party with magic like Tornado, or other | | status effecting spells like Silence and Darkness. The trick is however | | that each time an orb is hit, it reverts to a previous state, so red | | would change to yellow and yellow to blue. It doesn't matter how weak | | or strong the hit is either. You main goal at the beginning of the battle | | to to destroy the NORG Pod which has about 2000 HP. To beat the first | | part of the battle without even taking damage simply do this. Have | | Squall attack the NORG Pod. Wait a second until the two orbs turn yellow | | and have your other two characetrs physically attack the two orbs so they | | change back to blue. Keep doing this over and over until the NORG Pod | | is destroyed and the real NORG shows his face. Now get something straight | | right now. When NORG has been revealed the first thing you need to do | | is use the Draw command and draw the Leviathan Guardian Force from the | | boss. DRAW LEVIATHAN! Get your attention? Good. Once that's out of | | the way you can start attacking. Unfortunately there is no longer any | | way to beat the boss without it attacking, NORG will begin to use his | | magic on you so now you have to focus on hitting those two orbs as | | well as keeping your party fully healed at all times, it's quite | | dangerous. Some of NORG's attacks include a basic Water spell Page 67

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 that | | hits one single character, as well as a basic Blizzara spell that hits | | one character as well. Notice you can Draw Shell from the boss, it may | | be a good idea to draw-cast Shell on all characters in your party to | | try and reduce some of the damage you take. Another of NORG's attacks, | | the Psycho Blast is basically just a powerful attack that does 700 - 800 | | damage to one character. NORG also has the ability to use Slow on | | someone so it takes longer for them to get turns. This will wear off | | eventually, but note that you can draw-cast the Esuna spell from | | NORG so if any abnormal status ailments occur, cure them quickly and | | get on with the fight. As NORG's hit points start to dwindle he will cast | | the Protect spell on himself to halve all physical damage he takes from | | that point on. He's so adamant about protecting himself in fact that | | often after he casts the Protect spell, he will cast it again before it | | wears off, and the spell will just miss, wasting one of his turns. If | | there's anything that will kill you in this battle it's going to be the | | Psycho Blast, when near death he just uses it over and over, be sure | | you've got some Curaga's in your magic inventory. When it comes to | | attacking the boss, since two of your teammates are going to be | | generally busy, I found that Squall simply normal attacking each turn | | was sufficient enough to drain his HP. If you can manage to let | | loose a Renzokuken on this boss, especially before NORG is able to cast | | the Protect spell on himself, it will totally annihilate him. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o If you examine the ground in front of the broken NORG Pod now you can find an invisible draw point for Bio. Take the elevator up and return to the first floor, it's probably a good idea to stop by your room in the dormitory and Page 68

Speak to Cid and ask him each of the questions that are listed. Leave the infirmary and return to the front hall where Xu will speak with you. Get on the elevator and ride it to the second floor. When Headmaster Cid asks you to go and find the girl, make your way to the library, you'll find her there. In the morning leave your room and there's suddenly an announcement. After that watch the scene. You'll have control again up on the bridge. Before leaving play a card game with Headmaster Cid, from him you can win the awesome 'Seifer Card.'

Try playing cards with him, his stock is really quite impressive. Return to that save point you found on the way to the mayor house and save your game, then go right. Keep running Page 69

One is to just let Squall's HP get as low as | | possible, have a good spell junctioned to his strength, and use | | Renzokuklen about once or twice to finish the boss off. The less | | dangerous way is of course to keep summoning the Quezacotl Guardian | | Force, when you boost it as much as you can it should be able to deal | | between 1500 - 2000 damage to the boss with a good hit. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o When everyone has met up and gone, speak with Rinoa.

Start the battle by summoning | | a Guardian Force to eliminate the two Galbadian soldiers. Summon | | something like Leviathan, if you summon Quezacotl then Raijin will gain | | life due to his absorbing of thunder based elemental attacks. After | | the soldiers have been dealt with, next you'll want to use one turn | | with all your characters to have them draw-cast the Protect spell that | | Raijin has on themselves. Since Raijin's only attack is a normal physical | Page 76

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | hit then obviously this is going to extend the battle for twice is long. | | When it comes to damaging Raijin there are a number of ways that work | | well, personally, like usual, I prefer to just waste him with Squall's | | limit break. With 100 Waters still junctioned to strength from the | | beginning of the game, as the best weapon you can currently get for | | him, Renzokuken should hit about six times for 1000 each time plus | | final attack he uses (if any.) Other people's limits can be just as | | effective like Zell's Duel or Irvine's shot. If physical attacks aren't | | your thing there's always summoning Guardian Forces over and over until | | you're sick of the animations, but at least you'll be protected during | | the casting time and they'll be taking damage instead of you. Now here's | | one more final tip to really make this battle easy. Before going into | | the fight junction 100 Sleeps to someone's physical attack, Raijin is | | susceptible to the Sleep spell so in theory you should be able to attack | | him over and over again without actually letting him get a turn. In the | | event he does get a turn it won't matter, because he also happens to | | lack an immunity to the Blind spell which makes it a lot harder for him | | to actually connect with a physical attack. Now you can't lose! | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Fujin | Level: 24 | Hit Points: 7200/7200 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Moderate | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | Looking for Ellone under | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | Seifer's command.

There | | are quite a few things to consider for this battle, but I know exactly | | where to start. Fujin has the Pandemona Guardian Force. DRAW PANDEMONA | | FROM FUJIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Understand? Good. Now as for the | | actual battle here's how it works. In Raijin's case he still has the | | same physical attack he had outside the hotel, but if I'm not mistaken | | it's even stronger now (though not by much, maybe 50 - 100 points.) | | This really doesn't matter, what matters is his brand new attack called | | the Raijin special which he will use randomly. The Raijin Special hits | | a single character for 800 - 900 points of physical damage. Raijin still | | has the Protect spell to be drawn from him so you'll want to get that on | | your characters as soon as possible, it cuts the damage taken Page 78

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 from the | | Raijin Special in half. For Fujin, all she will do is use wind magic | | over and over. The two spells she uses are Aero and the much more | | damgerous Tornado. Aero hits a single character for about 200 - 250 | | damage while Tornado hits your entire party for 400 - 500 damage. Far | | more dangerous. Now, imagine you had 100 of the Tornado spell yourself | | already... what if you junctioned it to your Elem-Def... I imagine you | | would benefit quite a lot from Fujin's attacks, possibly even healed by | | them although it really doesn't matter and I'll get to the reason in | | just a second. You'll remember I said to draw the Pandemona Guardian | | Force from Fujin at the beginning. Well if you note her description when | | you scan her, it says her wind magic is based on the help of another | | being with wind power, this is the Pandemona Guardian Force. Once | | Pandemona has been drawn out of Fujin she is no longer able to cast any | | wind magic. From now until the end of the battle her only attack is | | called Zan. She throws her pinwheel at you for a pathetic 200 damage or | | so. Not only is this attack weak, but the damage is cut in half by the | | Protect spell. Fujin has just become totally useless and you need to | | focus all your attacks on Raijin. Note that all the status effects that | | worked in the last battle still work on Raijin, and even work on Fujin | | as well so it's quite easy to just put them both to sleep and let loose | | your most powerful Guardian Forces. Just remember that you still can't | | use Quezacotl, and while you don't have any wind based Guardian Forces | | at the moment, avoid spells like Aero and Tornado yourself. You can | | draw the Cura spell from Fujin if you party needs healing which is just | | another reason to keep her alive while you focus your attacks on Raijin. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Page 79

Cerberus has a few basic attacks that he starts the | | battle off with but does eventually change his pattern after taking a | | certain amount of damage. Cerberus will start with a physical attack | | that is quite powerful. Having Protect on your characters might help | | but it also might cause a problem for reasons explained better in a | | moment. Cerberus' other primary attack is the Tornado spell, the best | | thing you can do is before the battle, refine as many Aero spells as you | | can (or better yet, Tornado spells if possible) and junction them to | | everyone's Elem-Def. This goes on for a few thousands damage, then once | | Cerberus has been hit for enough, he will cast Triple on himself. There | | are a few things you can do here. First of all understand that Triple | | is a spell that allows the caster to use not one, not two, but three | | magic spells in a single cast. Your first inclination might be to cast | Page 83

Create PDF with GO2PDF for free, if you wish to remove this line, click here to buy Virtual PDF Printer


finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Reflect on your party using the Carbucnle Guardian Force or something of | | that sort. Doing so however will make Cerberus cast Dispel three times | | to remove your Reflect status. This has its benefits though, first, | | it wastes one of his turns. Secondly when he triple-casts the Dispel | | spell, it doesn't hit each one of you party members, it just gets used | | on three characters randomly so technically it could hit the same person | | three times causing him to use it again next turn or live with the fact | | that you can Reflect his magic. This is also what I meant about problems | | with Protect, Dispel will just take that off your party as well. Another | | option is for you to cast your own Dispel magic, since Triple is a magic | | state, Dispel will remove the Triple status from Cerberus causing him | | to cast it once again. Using these tactics you should be able to keep | | him bus and occupied while you attack. Cerberus will pretty much always | | have less than 10,000 hit points, regardless of level, which isn't very | | much at all. Use physical attacks to shave off his health throughout the | | battle. If you need to summon Guardian Forces, be sure not to summon | | Pandemona and be doubly sure not to summon Quezacotl, he is immune to and | | absorbs their damage respectively. Lastly I'll just outline what I did | | to win this battle personally. I took off all Guardian Forces from my | | characters and put them all on Squall, then I junctioned Cura to his | | hit points and Curaga to his vitality so that he had a fair bit of life | | and physical attacks would be severely weakened. Next I junctioned | | Aero to his Elem-Def. For abilities he had Str+20%, Str+40% and Mug. | | When the battle begins I cast Haste on Squall then attack about three | | times before the Spd-J Scroll is stolen. That scroll allows a Guardian | | Force to learn the ability to junction magic to speed, one of the most | | important stats you can improve. After this Cerberus was able to knock | | down Squall's hit points to a critical level. A single Renzokuken, with | Page 84

Get the 'Card Key [3]' from the girl and then return to where you to where you fought Cerberus. Take the upper left door and climb the stairs that you see here. Go left and use the card key to ride the elevator up. There's a save point at the top, when you're ready to face the Sorceress, you can approach her.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | physical attack. Seifer also happens to be too stupid to know the | | difference between a Reflecting character an a normal character. This | | with one single use of Carbuncle, he will spend half the battle casting | | Fira on himself, and he's perfectly happy to do it over and over again. | | Unfortunately this can't just be a simple no-nonsense fight, there of | | course has to be something that at least gives it some challenge, and in | | this case, it just so happens that there is. After losing about three | | quarters of his life, Seifer will get angry at Squall and use the Demon | | Slice. Unlike his other attacks, this one is daggerous, it will hit | | Squall for more than 1000 damage, and he doesn't just use it once. After | | he uses it the first time, he will randomly use it again after that point | | meaning you need to go on an all out offensive to make sure he never gets | | that chance. In order to maintain his... being alive... Seifer will start | | to use Hi-Potions every turn near the end of the battle, meaning you | | aren't even going to be attacked anymore, but if you can deal more than | | 1000 damage per round then you've got a problem. Use limit breaks or | | magic or whatever it takes to bring him down. Remember you probably just | | got the Cerberus Guardian Force, use it on your party to put them in the | | Triple status, then Triple cast some powerful magic on Seifer. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Fortunately, while there is another battle coming up, you are given time to save and heal in between the fights. Save your game, use a Tent, then go back down the elevator and head right on the second floor. Go around the outer walkway to the door at the bottom, this is the auditorium.

There | | are subtle differences between this fight and the last one, but mostly in | | your favour. Seifer's physical attack seems to be weakened a bit, he | | has less hit points and he won't use the Demon Slice attack. Also the | | item you can Mug from him has changed, you can now grab a Hero which is | | a very important type of item you'll want to have later in the Page 87

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 game that | | temporarily makes a character invulnerable to attack. Once Seifer has | | been defeated, the battle against Edea will officially begin. Before you | | do anything, and I mean anything, use the draw command and take the | | Alexander Guardian Force from her inventory. DRAW THE ALEXANDER GF, | | DO NOT FORGET. There you go. As for attacks, the Sorceress has many of | | them, and powerful ones at that. First of all her Maelstrom hits all of | | your party members and takes away half of their current hit points, but at | | least it can't kill them. It also inflicts a status ailment on them | | which I beleive is the Cursed status that does not allow you to use | | limit breaks, it can be cured with Esuna magic which fortunately can | | be drawn right from Edea. Edea also likes to cast Silence on most members | | of your party to prevent them from using magic. Since these people would | | be unable to use Esuna on themselves, you'll have to either hope that you | | have other party members who are not silenced, or that you have items you | | can use to get rid of it (Echo Screen or Remedy will do the trick). When | | if comes to damaging your party Edea will use the powerful Blizzaga | | spell over and over again. Lastly, and most dangerously, Edea has the | | ability to use Death magic, With a single cast she will kill off one of | | your party members. Having the Full-Life spell in your stock is a good | | thing for this battle, although prevention is the best form of treatment. | | Junctioning the Death spell yourself to your ST-Def will totally | | eliminate all danger from that spell. If you don't have death, note that | | junctioning Life and Full-Life to your ST-Def will also increase your | | resistance to death, perhaps not 100%, but it will certainly help. With | | all this though, Edea is not without her weaknesses, and the ones she does | | have are quite pathetic. First, Edea likes to cast Dispel magic on your | | party which is why it's hard to Reflect her Blizzaga spells. The thing is | | though, if you're not even trying to use Reflect at all, she Page 88

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 will still | | spend time casting Dispel on your party for no apparent reason, the spell | | just misses and she wastes her turn. Worst of all for Edea is that she | | is susceptible to the Sleep spell. If you have 100 Sleeps junctioned | | to your ST-Atk, you can in theory just attack her over and over again, | | ending the battle without even giving her a turn. With an easy-to-exploit | | weakness like this you shouldn't have any problems. She has no immunities | | so all magic is equally effective, just don't forget to draw Alexander! | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Orphanage | (0000O) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o over the | | bridge.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 The | | Ruby Dragon has two main attacks that it uses, those attacks are a claw | | slice that deals about 400 physical damage. The other is the Fira | | spell, you don't want to Reflect that or anything though since it will | | heal the Ruby Dragon. The thing to do is to just junction a bunch of | | Fire magic to your Elem-Def before the battle starts so that it doesn't | | really hurt you at all. Keep in mind that Laguna's limit is very | | powerful and you've got that great new Guardian Force, Alexander, that | | you can summon which deals Holy damage and exploits the dragon's | | weakness.

Abadon has two attacks, both physical, so Protect helps | | you quite a bit during this fight. His first attack and most common one | | deals about 700 damage to a single character. His second deals about | | 400 damage but also inflicts the Cursed status ailment. After a few | | attacks, Abadon will stand on his hind legs and change his attack | | pattern. During this time Abadon is invulnerable to physical attacks, | | well almost invulnerable. Most physical attacks deal less than 30 damage. | | In this state Abadon will drop his two physical attacks in favour of | | two new spells, Confuse and Blind. The latter isn't too dangerous but the | | former can really turn your party against each other, before battle you | | may want to junction of lot of the Confuse spell to your ST-Def.

If someone has Curaga magic then cast it | | on the boss for massive damage, With the item command, use an X-Potion | | or an Elixir to deal 9999 damage, with a Phoenix Down or a Mega-Phoenix | | you can instantly kill the boss in a single hit. With the Recover | | ability you can deal 9999 damage easily, with the Revive ability you can | | kill the boss in one hit. Get the idea? It's quite simple. | Page 93

Cheryl's Store will never be open but keep trying over and over again anyway, eventually you'll get a "Here you go" message and receive the ultra-rare 'Rosetta Stone.' It's possible to get some less impressive items from the other stores as well. There's a couple of things to do now. From the city entrance which is just down from the shopping area, go left. When you come to one of the transport platforms, sit down on it and choose to go to the airstation. Get off and speak to the white robed man labelled as the Presidential Aide. Sit back down on the platform and ride it to the presidential palace. When you get off, go right one screen and enter the palace. Speak to the person in front of the door where you first came from, after talking to them the person will walk away and you can pick up the 'Occult Fan IV' off the ground where they were standing. Leave the palace now and go left. Head left past the platform and then go right when you come to the next fork. Proceed one screen to the right and you'll find yourself on a walkway high above the other path. There's a lone Esthar soldier standing stationary on this walkway, speak to him (the effect will come into play later.) Continue right until you come to another transport platform, ride it to the city entrance and rent a car there when you go down (you can rent a car by examining the terminal beside the elevator.)

Beefore going anywhere else, try to find something which looks quite circular, it's further South than all of the other three locations around the Southeastern side of the continent, however to get there you have to go around the top past the other destinations. This place is called Tears' Point. Run down the path toward the middle where you will find the 'Solomon Ring.' Notice that you cannot use the Solomon Ring in your inventory. Well get yourself six Steel Pipes, six Malboro Tentacles and six Remedy+ and try to use the ring. You'll automatically acquire the new Guardian Force, Doomtrain. Leave Tears' Point and head for the large structure to the North that has a huge sloped ramp going off of it. When you arrive at the Lunar Gate head inside and speak to the man inside. After everything is set form your new party lead by Zell and return to Esthar. Ride the transport platform at the entrance to the Presidential Palace. When it asks if you want to get off at the Innter Skyway, agree. Head left for two screens to find that lone Esthar soldier once again. Speak to him and another soldier comes running by. Speak to the other soldier when he stops to get the 'Combat King 004.' Now find another transport and ride it to Odine's Laboratory. Use the platform just inside the laboratory to get to the top. After listening to Odine speak you now know of three contact points, but you'll only need the first. Use the initial five minutes to leave Odine's lab and make your way to the contact point. Make a right when you leave to reach the city entrance. Head up from the entrance to reach the inner skyway and then make a left. Head left from here and you'll already be at your destination, one screen right of where the lone Esthar soldier was standing before. Remember the thing won't actually show up until 15:00 so you might have to wait. Defeat the enemies when the thing appears before the timer hits 12:00 and you'll be able to get on board.

(The shopping area is one screen right of the main entrance, which is two screens right of Odine's laboratory.) Jump onto the Lunatic Pandora from any of them.

It's quite simple, if Rinoa is at the lower left corner of your screen, hold the analog stick down and left to very slowly move toward her. Note that you can hold the triangle button to move faster, but you don't have an infinite amount of fuel, it's best to save this for near the end.

In the room on the left is the second purple Propagator, assuming the first one is still dead, kill this one and they will be gone forever. The next one is easy, go back into the previous hall and defeat the red Propagator. You'll find the second red Propagator if you try to return to the save point where you first entered the ship, it's up on the walkway above the first purple Propagator. Keep going down from that second red Propagator toward the entrance and you'll find a yellow Propagator. Defeat it (save your game perhaps) then go back downstairs. Head up through the large red door past the dead purple Propagator, then left and left again. When you see the green Propagator don't fight it, instead go thorugh the door on the left. When the second yellow Propagator has been defeated then you can fight that green one you just passed. The second green and final Propagator can be found in the following location: from the first purple Propagator I mentioned there were two doors at the top of the room, well take the smaller gray door on the upper right this time to find the second green Propagator. If you remember where you found the first green Propagator, standing on that platform between the two doors, that's your destination. Ride the elevator up and watch the scene. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Preparations | (0000V) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o Head up to the room in the Ragnarok beside | | the elevator platform.

Fly the Ragnarok to the Eastern o------------------------------o continent and find the Sorceress Memorial just North of Tears' Point. Go inside and well... rescue Rinoa. After this you need to fly the Ragnarok back to Edea's house. Follow Angelo left when you get inside. After the scene, it's once again time for another trip. Back to Esthar's Presidential Palace with you, to save time you can simply dock the airship at the Airstation around the middle rather than landing on the ground and walking in manually. Head for the Presidential Palace and ride the transport up. Go all the way left, then watch the scene. Once all this is over you'll have control of the Ragnarok again on the world map. Press circle to enter the ship, go down the elevator and talk to Laguna. Play cards with him and you can win the 'Squall Card.' With that, it's time to prepare for the end of the game. Any sidequests you wish to do should be done now. Check out the sidequests section for some of those. When you're ready to proceed toward the end of the game, head for Tears' Point and the Lunatic Pandora. Keep in mind that you can still leave the Lunatic Pandora, but after the Lunatic Pandora you will be taken to the final dungeon from which many sidequests are no longer available, so if you go into the Lunatic Pandora and still want to do stuff again, don't finish it. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Lunatic Pandora | (0000W) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o Leave the Ragnarok and board the Lunatic | | Pandora.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | | There are three parts to this boss, the main core along with a left and | | a right probe that serve as the boss' shoulders. The probes can attach | | and come off at will, depending on whether they are attached or not | | the boss' attack pattern will change. The battle starts with the two | | probes attacked. In this state the boss can do little more than two | | things, a normal physical attack and another attack called Dual Homing | | Laser which deals moderate damage (less than 1000) to a single member but | | it's only a counterattack so you won't be seeing it if you aren't | | attacking. After awhile when the boss decides to let go of the probes, | | it usually launches the Corona attack at this point which can be | | extremely devastating. Corona hits every member of your party and | | automatically drops their HP down to one. During the time the boss is | | in this state basically all that will hapen is the two probes will use | | physical attacks for very low amounts of damage. Before going back into | | the normal state again, the boss likes to use the Medigo Flame which | | hits your party for more than 1500 damage each person in your party. | | To defeat the boss quickly, ignore the probes all the time, their defense | | is through the roof anyway. What you want to do is junction a good | | masgic spell to Squall's strength, then junction 100 of the Thundaga | | spell to his elemental attack so you can exploit the boss' weakness. | | Hopefully at this point you will be able to deal 9999 in a single hit, | | perhaps not but at least it will be enough to take him out. As a backup | | always have Quezacotl ready to summon, it will come in handy here. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Seifer | Level: 26 | Hit Points: 21,200/21,200 | Page 108

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | the days of old. There's a twist to this battle however, there are two | | enemies and one of them is Rinoa. If Rinoa is killed during the course | | of this battle then the game is over. You need to focus only on Adel | | while keeping Rinoa alive. This becomes somewhat difficult because Adel | | will absorbs some HP from Rinoa prior to every one of her attacks. For | | this reason it's important to have Leviathan's Recover ability handy or | | anything similar to that because you need to heal Rinoa quite often. | | Adel has three main attacks. The two weaker spells are Flare and Energy | | Bomber, these will deal around 800 damage to a single character. Far | | more powerful is the Meteor spell which as you are probably already aware | | of hits randomly and deals a moderate amount of damage. Assuming you | | can just keep healing Rinoa and yourself between this you should be okay. | | In fact the best thing to do is just draw-cast the Regen spell from Rinoa, | | on Rinoa. This should keep her gaining HP just about fast enough to | | negate all the drain. After awhile Adel will start charging magical | | energy and skip a few of her turns. This is a great time to really go | | on the offensive and try to end the battle, because after she's done | | charging she'll let off the Ultima spell. It's not the most devastating | | thing you've ever faced but it will deal around 2000 damage to your entire | | party so if you aren't prepped for it then it could easily end the battle. | | When it comes to damaging Adel, you can't really use Guardian Forces at | | all since they target all enemies, which at this point still includes | | Rinoa. Obviously physical attacks are preferable. Limit breaks are iffy | | depending on who is using them. I did not come across this particular | | circumstance, but I imagine that if Squall ended his Renzokuken with a | | finishing move like Blasting Zone, it could possibly spell the end of | | Rinoa, be careful with things like that. Adel has a weakness to Wind so | | perhaps junctioning Tornado to your Elem-Atk before battle would be a | Page 111

The same | | applies to junctioning just the Flare spell to your Elem-Def. After the | | boss has taken a certain amount of damage it will drop its mask and | | change attack patterns. A new ability called Magic Summon allows the | | boss to summon a single enemy into the battle to fight with it. It seems | | like every time you kill the enemy the boss will just summon a stronger | | one, so ignore the enemy and focus and the Sphinx. The only other thing | | you need to worry about in this form is the Doom spell which will put a | | timer above your character's head and count down until they eventually | | die. Obviously you don't have a lot of options in this battle... attack! | | Or perhaps the only other choice would be... Mug!

When the Sphinx is defeated simply head straight up through the door. Step on the light fixture and it will fall to the room below. In the middle of the room is a hatch in the floor, go down through it to find the next boss.

The easiest way to exploit this is not | | to exploit it at all, Tri-Point's HP total is so low that all you really | | need are non-elemental physical attacks anyway. Tri-Point has three basic | | attacks, a normal physical attack so weak that it will make you say | | "Damn... that's weak." The next is even more pathetic, not only will | | Tri-Point Scan one of your characters, after a couple of turns it might | | just Scan that same character again. To balance this weakness Tri-Point | | has a very powerful attack called Onrush capable of dealing over 2000 | | damage to a single person. As for attacking Tri-Point, like I said, | | physical attacks work great but there's something you have to Page 115

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 watch out | | for. Make sure your whole party is junctioned to the maximum with | | Thunder elemental magic. Tri-Point will counter every single attack with | | the Mega-Spark which hits everyone in your party for about 3000 thunder | | elemental damage, you can see why you would want to protect against it. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Well that's your second unsealed ability. Climb the stairs back up to the previous room and step on the green circle thingy on the right side, this will allow you to depress the lever. Now switch to the other party and cross the light fixture which won't fall this time, a boss waits on the other side.

Create PDF with GO2PDF for free, if you wish to remove this line, click here to buy Virtual PDF Printer


finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 is in the | | counterattack which deals 1000 damage or so to a single character and | | the counterattack occurs every single time Krysta takes damage without | | fail, even with magic. The one exception is that when you summon a | | Guardian Force, Krysta will not counterattack. Consider that summoning a | | GF will get you through physical defense and avoid counterattack, it's | | certainly a good way to defeat this boss. I avoid saying the best way, | | because it isn't. Krysta's HP total is low compared to most bosses, you | | should still have at least one character with a strong physical attack | | since you needed it at least for the first boss. Simply cast the | | Meltdown spell on Krysta to reduce its defense to 0, and smash the thing. | | Be sure you keep a decent amount of HP with your party, once defeated | | Krysta will always end the battle with the Ultima spell, which will hit | | your entire party for about 2000 and can end the game even though you won. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o With your second party return to where you fought the Sphinx and head right. This will eventually lead you down past a green circle and into a room with paintings along each wall. What you need to do is examine every single painting in the room. There are twelve total. The first two "IGNUS (Fire)" and "INANDANTIA (Flood)" are on the left and right side of the door at the top of the screen. Another is slightly further right of that "JUDICIUM (Judgment)." Check the bottom right side of the screen for "INTERVIGILIUM (Sleep)." At the top of the stairs from right to left, there is "VIVIDARIUM (Garden)," "VIGIL (Watchman)," "VIATOR (Messenger)," "VENUS (Love)," "XIPHIAS (Swordfish)," "XERAMPELINAE (Red Clothes)," "XYSTUS (Tree-lined Road)," and "INAUDAX (Cowardice)." Now examine the large painting on the wall downstairs on the left side. If it doesn't prompt you to input the titles then you Page 117

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 didn't examine all the paintings. If you wish to try and solve this puzzle on your own, head up the stairs and make a right. At the end of the walkway you can get a good view of the clock in the floor down below, that's the clue. If you can;'t figure it out from there then read the answer that follows this sentence: Input the three choices in this order, VIVIDARIUM INTERVIGILIUM VIATOR.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | Similar to Krysta, Trauma has an incredibly high physical defense stat. | | Like the other boss it may be a good idea to cast the Meltdown spell and | | reduce his defense down to the bare minimum. Two great ways to win this | | battle are either boosting and summoning the Pandemona Guardian Force | | which will exploit his weakness to wind magic, or simply junctioning | | Tornado to your Elem-Atk (requires casting Meldown of course, unless | | your attack is high enough so that it just doesn't matter. Trauma | | has a couple attacks of his own, a physical attack that isn't even worth | | mentioning due to its weakness, and another attack called the Mega | | Pulse Cannon which is no pushover. The Mega Pulse Cannon doesn't | | quite live up to its name, but you'll be facing about 1000-1500 damage | | each time it connects. To try and balance out the numbers, Trauma likes | | to use its special abilities and create little drones for itself called | | Dromas. These are pretty much just copies of Trauma with the same | | attacks that deal about a quarter as much damage (and the name of the | | Mega Pulse Cannon changes to the Mini Pulse Cannon). They can be taken | | out with little effort and that's about all there is to the battle. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Head straight up from where you fought Trauma and down the stairs past the green circle on the ground. Proceed through the door on the left and grab the 'Prison Key.' Doing so will trigger yet another boss battle.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | be a good idea to junction Esuna to your St-Def and other such spells | | that protect you from various different ailments. It will come as no | | surprise that once again this boss' defense power is quite high. | | Use Meltdown or Doomtrain and then start attacking, but note that the | | boss will almost always counterattack with the Counter Twist dealing | | over 1000 damage to whoever attacked. When not counterattacking the | | Gargantua is likely using the Evil-Eye which can deal damage as well as | | inflict curse. The fight can get nasty so have people ready with Siren's | | special ability Treatment, hopefully you've unlocked their use by now. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Only two bosses remain at this point, but let's start with Catoblepas shall we. In order to reach this boss, switch over to your original party. Have them go up one screen and examine the fountain to get a 'Treasure Vault Key.' Return to the very first room of the castle, this might be a good time to leave the castle and save your game. Having both your parties start over at the beginning isn't too bad at this point, neither of them are really positioned anywhere special anyway. Climb the stairs in the front hall and go left at the top. Descend these rounded stairs and go through the door past the green circle. In the somewhat slanted hall there is a door on the left side, use the key you found in the fountain then go inside. There are four boxes in this room. You need to get them all open to trigger the boss fight. The first box changes the state of the first and second. The second box changes the state of the first, second and third. The third box changes the state of the second, third and fourth. The fourth box changes the state of the third and fourth boxes. To trigger the boss fight do the following: Examine the fourth box, the second box, the first boxand the third box. Page 123

To make it easy all you have to do is junction 100 | | of the Thundaga spell to your Elem-Def. You might even want to junction | | some more Thunder magic to simplify things further. Catoblepas' most | | common attack by far is the Thundaga spell, and if you're gaining HP | | each time it is being cast then you really have an advantage here. | | Things that will still deal damage are the boss' weak normal attack | | and the rather aptly named "Deadly Horn" which can easily do more than | | 1000 damage to a single party member. The most powerful attack that | | Catoblepas will use is the summon spell which is somewhat similar to | | Quezacotl, the good news is that it is indeed thunder elemental so you'll | | be healed close to 2000 HP if you've maxed out your thunder Elem-Def. | | For damaging the boss you can pretty much relax since you'll be healed | | so often and just focus on physical attacks each turn. Things that | Page 124

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | exploit his weakness like junctioning the Water/Quake spell to your | | Elem-Atk or summoning Leviathan are always a good idea. Assuming you | | are able to reach a state where the amount the boss heals you roughly | | equals the amount of damage you take, so that you can just stand around, | | then there's one other thing you will definitely want to do. Sit there | | and draw-draw-draw until you have 100 of the Meteor spell, well worth it. | | Not only is the magic strong but its the second best overall junctioning | | spell in the game. The last thing to note of course is that Catoblepas | | will use Meteor himself before dying after you're dealt the finishing | | blow, son't let your HP dip before killing the boss or you'll be sorry. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o The next part is optional, but if you want to get a Rosetta Stone, then you should do it, the stone is quite worth it. If your party for fighting Catoblepas contains at least two female characters then leave the room and head up. You'll come to an elevator, stand on it and change to the other party. If it doesn't contain at least two females, go back to the entrance and switch up so that it does. You need to get a party with at least two females onto that lower elevator, it doesn't really matter how you do it (three females is most preferable.) The reason for this is that the elevator is going to have to lift up, and the females weigh less than the males. Now that you've got them on the lower elevator switch to the male party. Have them head down the right path which eventually leads to the area with the stairs down to the prison. Instead of going down, go up the stairs and through the door on the left. It will lead past the save point to the upper elevator. Switch to your other party and have them go left to find the 'Floodgate Key' in the next room. Switch back to your other party. Have them return to the prison area once again. Downstairs beside the Page 125

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 door you entered to fight the Red Giant there is a switch where you can use the Floodgate Key. Remember to actually pull the lever after using the key. Leave this area and return to the front hall. Take the lower left door and go up past the fountain until you reach the tower. There is an organ at the back of the room here. Examine it and do the following, you need to slam down on every key at the same time. Note that the start and select buttons are NOT INCLUDED. If you slam them down as well you will perform a soft-reset and screw yourself up. Return to the fountain one room below and take the upper right exit. If there are poles still sticking up here then go back and try again to press all keys at once, if not the proceed through. At the end of the waterway there is a 'Rosetta Stone' on the ground. Now to proceed with the game, head back to the room with the organ and go upstairs. Cross the bridge and go through the door on the left. Begin climbing the spiral walkway. When you see an object swinging back and forth in the middle, stand on the left side and press X to jump to it. This leads to the final of the eight seal bosses.

| The Tiamat only has one single attack, its Dark Flare. Tiamat can't just | | cast Dark Flare every single turn, instead it wastes most of its turns | | charging up the Dark Flare attack, during this time you're free to | | attack the boss all you want without risking yourself at all. Each turn | | Tiamat will charge the attack by adding another letter to the Dark Flare | | until he actually uses it. Each of these can be considered an attack so | | let's take a look at how they affect your party. The "D" attack is | | quite weak, as is the "Da" attack that usually follows. "Dar" is equally | | as weak as its two predecessors. After "Dar" Tiamat will use an attack | | that just comes out of nowhere, the "Dark F" attack will catch most | | players by surprise who expected to see only a single letter added. | | Following this the new trend continues with the "Dark Fla" attack which | | still isn't very strong. Tiamat then breaks the cycle of weak no-damage | | attacks with its "Dark Flare." Dark Flare can deal anywhere from | | 2000-4000 damage to your entire party but here's the deal. I'm not quite | | sure what element the attack is, but it's either fire, ice or thunder | | because for me Squall was immune to ech one of them, each time Tiamat | | use Dark Flare Squall would be healed for over 3000 HP making the battle | | physically impossible to lose short of attacking yourself. Given this | | fact you can pretty much guarantee a win, with that take your time to | | draw any magic spells you want and finish off Tiamat with physicals. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Now that you've got all the seals broken it's time to consider taking on the hardest boss in the game, the optional superboss Omega Weapon. Omega Weapon is totally optional and believe me when I tell you the rewards for beating him are garbage. You get a "Proof of Omega" title in your menu and some crappy Page 127

Regardless, here's how to trigger the fight. Return to the water fountain with the party you wish to use to take on Omega Weapon and switch to your secondary party. Have them SAVE THE GAME then go to the front hall and take the right path at the top of the stairs. Down at the bottom of the rounded staircase before the painting room you might notice a wire hanging down on the left side of the screen. Go to the lower left side of the room below the green circle and pull the wire. When a timer appears at the top run to the green circle and switch to your other party.

Here's what you're going to need before going Page 128

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 into battle | | starting basically with the most important, Squall's Lionheart weapon. | | With the Lionheart weapon Squall is capable of using the Lionheart limit | | break afer Renzokuken which will bring his damage up past the 100,000 | | mark, very very important. To get the Lionheart you'll need Pulse Ammo | | which can be refined through Ammo-RF with Energy Crystals I believe | | can be obtained (Rare Item dropped) from Red Dragons which are at a high | | level. Laser Cannons (dropped by Mobile Type 8) will also refine into | | Pulse Ammo. Next we have the other massive damage dealer in this battle, | | the Eden Guardian Force. You'll need Eden to be as high a level as | | possible. SumMag+10%/SumMag+20%/SumMag+30%/SumMag+40% are all a must | | as is the Boost ability. (Just in case you still don't have a clue how, | | since I've heard people who don't know Boost actually does something and | | the game manual isn't clear, you boost Guardian Forces by holding select | | and tapping square.) Eden can easily be boosted to 255% since it takes | | so long to cast. Junction Eden on anyone but Squall since like I said, | | his limit break is by far the most important. Next, if you're at level | | 100 or any other level divisible by five for any of your characters they | | will need 100 of the Death spell junctioned to their St-Def since Omega | | Weapon will cast LV5 Death during the battle. Furthermore you'll need | | plenty of Aura magic most importantly, at least a couple Meldown spells | | (or Doomtrain, but keep in mind that heals Omega, not a big deal if you | | use it early.) Squall should have 100 Ultima spells junctioned to | | strenth, or a weaker spell as long as his str stat is 255, junction | | abilities like Str+60% if need be. As many people as possible should have | | 100 Triples junctioned to speed as well. Finally it's a very good idea | | to use a Phoenix Pinion in a fight before the battle if you haven't | | already. Using a Phoenix Pinion will summon a Phoenix which revives your | | whole party. In battles after that the Phoenix will randomly Page 129

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 appear | | when everyone in your party dies giving you at least some chance to make | | a comeback if you happen to get game over. Now there's something else | | that is rather important. Omega Weapon has abilities that will totally | | annihilate your party no matter what you do, for this reason you need to | | bring any of the following items you have into battle: Hero-trial, Hero, | | Holy War-trial, Holy War. These items have the ability to make either | | one character or an entire party invincible temporarily. For those of you | | who are totally bent on leaving your card stock in tact, you're going to | | be in a lot of trouble. There are the two Hero items you should have | | stolen from the battle with Seifer and perhaps some Hero-trials refined | | but beyond that, you'll have to hope the timing of these items will | | correspond with Omega's most powerful spells. The smart thing to do of | | course is realize you're trying to beat Omega any way you can, there's no | | one to play cards with anyway in the Time Compressed world, and refine | | the Laguna card into 100 Heroes and the Gilgamesh card into 10 Holy Wars. | | Now you're getting somewhere. (Laguna card is won from playing against | | Ellone and Gilgamesh is won from doing the CC Group sidequest.) Lastly of | | course, the usual suspects you should bring into the battle by common | | sense anyway: Revive ability, Recover ability, Auto-Haste ability, | | Full-Life spell and Curaga spell. Now it's time to enter the battle. | | Begin the fight by doing exactly the following: have your first character | | cast the Meltdown spell on Mega Weapon, repeat this if the "defense equals | | zero" status does not connect. Have the next person cast the Aura spell | | on Squall and the last person use a Holy-War item to make your entire | | party invincible. Next turn whoever has Eden junctioned should summon | | it, preferably with 1000 compatibility (compatibility is raised in battle | | by summoning the Guardian Force often, or using a LuvLuv G item, refine a | | bunch of them from the Chubby Chocobo card.) Squall should Page 130

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 definitely | | use Renzokuken on his next turn since you casted Aura on him, then hope | | and pray he ends it with Lionheart. Note that you cannot cast Aura on | | someone under the effect of Hero or Holy-War so you need to wait till it | | wears off, cast Aura on Squall and use another Holy-War. Omega Weapon's | | attacks are brutal of course. His physical deals thousands of damage to | | someone. He can cast both Meteor and Ultima magic spells. By far the | | most dangerous spell is the tetra Blast or whatever it's called, it hits | | your entire party for about 4000 damage like ten of fifteen times, | | not possible to survive which is why you need those Heroes and Holy Wars. | | That's the basic strategy, you get the idea, it's putting it into practice | | that's difficult, something always seems to pop up right when things are | | looking good, there is a small element of luck, hope it's on your side... | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Well no matter whether you faced Omega or not (if you did the rest is a pushover) it's time to face the boss of the game. Head to the top of the tower and it's just a linear path from there to the very end...

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Holy.....Immune |

| |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | Ultimecia starts the first battle by randomly choosing between your six | | party members who to face. Each time one of them is killed they are | | "Absorbed into time" and another person replaces them meaning that if | | you have a main party you wish to use, simply let her kill off those | | background characters and eventually your main party will come into play | | though it does give you a chance to take part in the battle with all | | six of your party members, take advantage of that. Ultimecia attacks with | | nothing but maguc spells, being a Sorceress after all, but this does give | | you one advantage. Spells like Thundaga, Tornado, Holy, Quake and all | | that, that deal elemental damage. You can jusction magic to your Elem| | Def so you are not only immune to them but perhaps healed by them. If you | | happen to have 100 Ultimas in your inventory, try junctioning them to | | your Elem-Def to boost yourimmunity to 100% for all elements and making at | | least one character virtually invincible for this battle. For damage | | must use whatever offensive means have worked thus far, personally I like | | Aura magic and limit breaks but if you want to blast her with Eden, go | | ahead. Doomtrain will exploit her weakness but stay away from Alexander. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Griever | Level: 25 | Hit Points: ?????/????? | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | In Squall's ming, the | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | strongest GF.

Other than that actually his attacks are almost | | impossible tp predict for one reason, he uses yours! Griever has the | | ability to draw-cast on your own team members meaning that he will pretty | | much randomly use magic from your inventory, so obviously if you keep | | a lot of crappy magic lying around in your stock this battle will probably | | be a lot easier. You need to take down Griever before he can take you | | down with your own magic. The boss' last attack is a nameless ability | | targets a party member and pretty much destorys every single stock of a | | random spell in their inventory which really sucks if it happens to be | | junctioned to an important stat. The most magic you have on your Elem| | Def the better since his magic is virtually random, but his HP total isn't | | to high so use your most powerful phsyicals to bring him down. After | | taking enough damage Griever will show his true power, the Shockwave | | Pulsar attack. I'm not even sure what this attack did to be honest, I | | couldn't see any damage dealt, it was like an instant kill. It wiped out | | my entire party (although the person with the most HP only had 3000.) | | Thanks to Phoenix's Rebirth Flame I was able to continue the fight but | | would definitely recommend being at maximum health before going on to try | | striking the final blow.

To keep this from happening use your most | | powerful attacks and Guardian Forces to take her down. If two of them | | do manage to appear then Ultimecia can use the Great Attractor spell which | | quite literally sends planets out of their orbits and throws them at you, | | it's none too pleasant but shouldn't deal more than 1500 damage or so | | to each member of your party.

Fortuantely | | this really is the final battle and the music is pretty badass, so it | | isn't so bad. Ultimecia will usually start off the fight with the Hell's | | Judgement ability which damages all your party members enough to bring | | them down to a single hit point without actually killing them. Don't | | pull any punches for this battle, empty your item inventory of things | | like Heroes, Holy Wars, Megalixirs and such, I mean you might as well, | | you sure as hell aren't going to need them after this. Ultimecia will | | continue to break the spells in your inventory so time is a factor in | | this fight, assuming you like having a healthy supply of magic spells. | | It does seem like her array of different attacks is somewhat limited. | | What you need to watch out for is when you see something called Draw | | Apocalypse. This means you need to heal your characters because on the | | next turn you're going to be hit with the Apocalypse attack which deals | | over 6000 damage to everyone in your party, it's extremely nasty. There's | | no real super-easy win here, as usual the best thing to do is just rely | | on the strongest attacks in the game, these are of course the Renzokuken | | limit break and a fully boosted Eden Guardian Force. With these two | | you will easily be able to deal the damage needed to win this battle, | | the real issue is whether or not you can survive against the power-house | | attacks like Hell's Judgment and Apocalypse. I'd say the one real | | important factor is having Leviathan's Recover ability on Squall, | | couple extra Heroes in your inventory for him and basically you're set. | | Page 136

The first person, card collecting "Jack" is located in the front hall of Balamb Garden, near where the save point at least USED to be at the Page 137

After defeating this person you have to find the card collecting "Club." This person is standing outside the cafeteris path entrance in the round hall that goes all the way around past all the different areas, this person will not show up every time so you might have to leave the screen and come back. After this person return to the front hall where you faced the Jack to find the "Diamond," one of the people standing beside the directory. After this you'll need to locate the "Spade," to find SPade take the elevator up to 2F and talk to one of the two guys sitting next to each other here. The last three are easy to find. The cardcollecting "Heart" is just Xu, located on the bridge, she's the first person to have a rare card, make sure to win the 'Carbuncle Card' from her. To find the next person, the card collecting "Joker," head for the Training Center. The guy who runs the item shop there is the Joker. He has the 'Leviathan Card.' Only one remains at this point, you have to head to the Infirmary and play cards with Dr. Kadowaki. After she mentions the king return to your room and take a nap.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 is in effect | | in Dollet. Regardless here's how it works. o------------------------------o You'll first find the card queen located in Balamb. When you either lose or win a "rare" card from the card queen she will move to one of eight different locations. Once a card is taken from you by the queen you can win it back from her again so don't worry too much about it. Basically to trigger this sidequest you have to get her to move to Dollet. What this means pretty much is that you need to start off by going to Balamb, losing a rare card to her and HOPING she decides to go to Dollet where she can be found upstairs in the pub. If she goes anywhere else you can find her there and try again, or just reset the game which is probably easier. Eventually when she does go to Dollet, speak with the queen and choose the option "About your artist father." She'll talk a bit and then request the MiniMog Card from you. Play the card and lose it to her on purpose, doing this will allow her father to create a new card. Now pay attention: Losing cards that she asks for can NOT be won back from her, they are won back from her brother who lives with the artist down from the pub in Dollet. Keep this in mind. So when you give her the MiniMog card you can win it back from her brother, but another new card is created. The person who has this card is different depending on which card you gave her. For example giving her the MiniMog card when she asks (not before) will put the Kiros Card in the inventory of the man standing on the sidewalk across the street from the junk shop in Deling City. This is how the sidequest works. You lose the card she asks for in Dollet, win it back from her brother and win a new card her father creates and gets put in the inventory of some person around the world. A complete list is below: - 'Kiros Card' - Lose the MiniMog card to the queen in Dollet and win this from the man in Deling City across the street from the Junk Shop. Page 139

Her eight possible locations are as follows: 1. Outside the station in Balamb, 2. Upstairs in the pub in Dollet, 3. The Winhill hotel, 4. The Lunar Gate, 5. Esthar's Presidential Palace, 6. The Shumi Village hotel, 7. The train tracks at Fisherman's Horizon, 8.

When you reach a large door, go through and ride the block like an elevator up. There are two ladders here, climb the ladder on the left. When you reach the top keep climbing up the other ladder to reach a platform and inside is a switch to trigger. Climb all the way back down to the bottom of the ladder, at the bottom in between the two ladders is a blue button, when you examine it, a staircase appears on the right. Ascend the stairs. When you reach the top, a new area, climb the ladder on your left that leads up to the one eyed statue. Take out the left eye, go back down, and ascend the stairs on the right. Place the left eye you just took into the left eye socket of the statue up here. A code will appear on the screen, the code is random so I can't give it to you, memorize the code or write it down or whatever. Take both eyes out of this statue, then return to the previous one and put both eyes into it. A somewhat inconspicuous code entry thing will appear on the right side of the screen. Use the D-pad to enter your code and then hit triangle. Proceed into the room and prepare for a boss fight against the Guardian Force: Odin.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | The great thing about this boss... is that he doesn't ever attack! You | | cannot lose! Well, except for the time limit, that makes things rather | | dangerous. Obviously you're going to want to avoid anything that takes | | a fair bit of time, usually that means avoiding Guardian Forces, which is | | probably a good idea for this battle. If I were you I would fly over to | | the huge desert where you will fight the Abyss Worm enemy. The Abyss Worm | | randomly drops Windmills, which are most likely Mug-able too, which can | | be turned into the Tornado spell with Quezacotl's T Mag-RF. Junction | | one hundred Tornado spells to Squall's strength and you'll really be in | | business for this battle. Like I implied, the best bet for winning is | | just using physical attacks, obviously the more time you had when you | | began the battle, the better your chances will be. You will find the | | Triple spell in Odin's inventory, not only is this one of the best spells | | in the game to junction to strength, it IS the best spell in the game to | | junction to speed, which is very very important. Get lots of Triples! | | Not only that, if you're looking to use magic as well as physical attacks, | | you can draw-cast the Triple spell from Odin onto your characters (or just | | summon Cerberus, that might be easier, but takes longer.) Really the | | only other thing you need to know is that he carries a Luk-J Scroll which | | you can Mug, the scroll is extremely rare, so try and grab it here. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Unlike other Guardian Forces, Odin cannot be junctioned, instead what happens is that randomly when a battle begins, assuming the enemy isn't a boss, Odin might appear and kill the enemy in a single strike, ending the battle. Odin's Page 142

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 appearance is not too rare, I'd say about one in ten fights that isn't against a boss. The attack cannot miss, if Odin appears he WILL kill the enemy. Next let's take a look at the Tonberry King. You'll probably want to leave the ruins and save your game first, go do that. This quest is far harder than the previous one so you might even want to leave it until awhile later. Here's what you need to do. Take off the Enc-None ability and go back into the ruins. About two screens in is a circular area with kind of like a broken down statue or fountain or something in the middle. While running around in this area you can fight the Tonberry enemy which has a hell of a lot of HP and gives very little experience and AP. Your goal is to kill 19 to 22 of these little creatures, the exact number is random. After you have killed that many, while still in the battle agains the last one you killed, once it falls over dead the Tonberry King drops into battle to avenge all the dead Tonberrys you have killed. Before we go into the battle let me just give a couple of tips on defeating all those Tonberrys. Since they have a lot of HP, spells like Demi and Guardian Forces like Diablos (okay, just Diablos) which attack with gravity will deal a hell of a lot of damage. Personally what I always do is use the Kamikaze ability which can deal upward of 40,000 damage if you use a powerful character. The Jumbo Cactuar has this ability as does another I believe. You can reference the GF ability section. Anyway, the only problem with this method is Kamikaze completely removes the character from battle. If you use it on the final Tonberry and the king appears, you won't have that character, so after killing about eighteen Tonberrys with Kamikaze, you'll want to change to another method for the final ones just to be safe.

Not only is the Tonberry | | King's HP total through the roof, his attack powereasily matches it. | | Tonberry King's normal attack will really hurt you, but the big damage | | comes from the Junk attack where all sorts of crap just falls down on | | your head. Both of these attacks can be reduced in damage if you have | | your party under the Protect status. Most of your support doesn't | | actually have to come out of your magic inventory since the Tonberry King | | is filled to the brim with helpful spells like Full-Life if you need to | | use them, maybe if you're strong enough you can even try to stock up | | on them too! When it comes to damaging the Tonberry King things get | | difficult. Obviously the Kamikaze method isn't as helpful since it isn't | | a one hit kill and you just lose the character, perhaps when you know the | | king is getting close to death you might want to use it provided you don't | | mind that character not getting any AP. Gravity too, is ineffective here. | | The Tonberry King is immune to it. Damage will have to come in the form | | of powerful Guardian Forces, physical attacks, or my personal favourite, | | limit breaks. By this point in the game you should have access to at | | least some Aura magic which makes it so your characters can Page 144

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | | | Watch out for this giant mustachioed Cactuar, he really packs a punch | | along with his astronomically high hit point total. This giant... thing | | attacks with three different attacks. First is a basic, moderately | | powerful stomp attack where he steps on you, the damage from this is | | negligible. The real damage comes with the Ker Plunk attack, Jumbo | | Cactuar falls to the ground and knocks your party into the air for a | | fair amount of damage to everyone. The final attack is the 10,000 | | Needles attack which not surprisingly deals 10,000 damage to a single | | party member. No matter how high your HP total is, and no matter how | | high your defense is, you cannot survive this attack. Lucky for you | | 10,000 Needles is ONLY a counterattack, meaning he'll only use it when | | you already attacked, so you don't need to worry about it while healing. | | For this reason though, given that the attacked cannot be survived, you | | need to come into this battle with either a hefty stock of the Full-Life | | spell, or Alexander's Revive ability, preferably both. When it comes to | | damaging Jumbo Cactuar, the best way to do it is by exploiting his | | severe weakness to Water. Given this, the easiest way to deal 9999 | | damage here is with Squall having a powerful spell junctioned to strength | | and 100 of the Water spell junctioned to his Elem-Atk. The second best | | way is by boosting the Leviathan Guardian Force as high as possible with | | as many SumMag+10% etc abilites learned as you possibly can. The one | | remaining thing you need to know is that once Cactuar has taken a lot of | | damage there is a chance he will run from battle. At that point you will | | always be given a warning message "Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating." There's | | not a lot you can do to keep him from running, your best bet is to just | | go nuts on the offensive and try to kill him before he gets away. If he | Page 146

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | does get away, he'll still appear on the world map, but all his HP will | | be restored. If you can't beat him, or need more abilities before you | | can do so, here's a great tip: around this island you will only fight | | Cactuar enemies which each give 20 AP when defeated. The problem is that | | they are hard to hit and run away from battle, so here's what to do to | | maximize your AP: Take everyne but Squall out of your party (just kill | | them off if you have to.) Squall has perfect hit rate meaning he will | | never miss with his attacks. Equip the "Initiative" ability so you can | | always attack at the beginning of the battle and junction either Haste or | | better yet, Triple, to your speed stat. With this you should be able | | to defeat at least two or three Cactuars per battle and really rack up AP. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Deep Sea Research Center | (000T5) \----------------------------------------------------o o------- Item Checklist -------o is located at | | tip of the | None...................... / | toward the lower | | the middle of o------------------------------o will see a

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 subsides. Upon reaching the middile a voice calls out of nowhere. You need to answer three questions correctly. The answer to the first question "So you wish to challenge me" is "It's not our will to fight." The answer to the second question "Begging me for mercy?" is "Never." Finally, neither of the two options for the last question "Damned imbeciles. Why do you wish to fight?" is the right answer. The right answer is the invisible third choice that doesn't actually say anything below the last two. Select that option to trigger the battle with the legendary Guardian Force, Bahamut.

Bahamut's primary attack is his | | strong physical claw attack, in fact that's where most of the damage in | | this battle is going to come from, so casting Protect on all of your | | party members is a really good idea. Bahamut's other two Page 148

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 attacks are | | Thundaga and Tornado. You might think it a good idea to use Carbuncle and | | Reflect these two spells back at him, however think again. The spells | | are elemental thunder and wind respectively, both of which Bahamut is | | immune to, and you can't reflect Tornado anyway. The better idea would be | | to junction Thundaga and Tornado to your Elem-Def to absorb them and let | | Bahamut heal you. Lastly, and certainly not leastly, there is Bahamut's | | Mega Flare. This spell will easily deal of 3000 damage, meaning you're | | going to have to have something junctioned to your HP like Curaga, or | | you're just going to be dead. Brothers' HP+80% will certainly carry its | | weight in this battle as well, the bonus being with so much HP it will be | | quite easy to use a limit break. When damaging Bahamut, stick with | | physical attacks and limit breaks. With magic remember to avoid | | elemental spells he is immune to and the Pandemona, Brothers and Quezacotl | | Guardian Forces. Everything else is fair game, try to steal Hyper Wrist. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Once Bahamut has been defeated, leave the island entirely. Upon entering the world map in the Ragnarok, press circle to enter the ship directly with your party. From here go up to the bridge and tell Irvine you're ready to go. This should meet the "waiting" requirement. Return to the Deep Sea Research Facility and go back inside. Now, from the large hole that remained after defeating Bahamut, there will be a save point and a large vine structure going down. Save your game and descend. Here you will learn after speaking with Zell that you start will twenty Reserve Steam Pressure. All right, sounds good. It will automatically use four Reserve Steam Pressure to open the door to the second level. Head down the stairs. Examine the machine at the bottom and choose to use two Reserve Steam Pressure.

Use one Reserve Steam Pressure here, one on the next floor and four on the floor after that. This will get you to the final area. Save your game on the left and head down.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 second best | | Guardian Force doing about 9999, it's a hell of a difference. Draw it. | | Now, on to Ultima Weapon. Most of the time he will start the battle | | with, and periodically cast throughout, the Light Pillar. Don't even | | think of it in terms of strength and power, just think of it as 9999 | | damage to a single person, no matter how hard to try to stop it, so just | | be ready immediately with either Alexander's Revive ability or the | | Full-Life magic spell. After he's done having fun with the Light Pillar | | it is likely he will move onto Meteor, a magic spell which hits for | | fairly weak amounts of damage, but hits randomly and numerous times so | | can prove quite dangerous. Of course like most other bosses, Ultima | | Weapon has a normal physical attack, but it isn't too strong, not even | | as strong as Bahamut's attack. We're still not done yet, Ultima Weapon | | has quite a few tricks up his sleeve. He uses an attack you probably | | haven't seen since the beginning of the game when fighting Diablos, the | | Gravija attack is extremely dangerous, it cannot kill you, but sucking | | away about 75% of everyone's HP leaves them very vulnerable, it's times | | like this where it's good to have Leviathan's Recover ability handy. | | Ultima Weapon's last attack is Quake, for this preparation is your best | | bet. Sure you could waste time casting Float on all your characters, but | | why do that when you can just junction Quake to your Elem-Def before the | | battle. Anyway, with all that out of the way, really the only thing you | | are going to be paying attention to during the entire battle is the Light | | Pillar, it is very very annoying, as is the sound it makes. As for your | | party, there are three primary spells you're going to want to bring into | | this battle, Full-Life, Aura and Meltdown. Meltdown is one of the best | | spells in the entire game, the actual damage it deals is pathetic but | | that's not the point. It inflicts a special status that reduces the | | enemy's defense to zero, even bosses! After casting Meltdown Page 151

If you can get control of | | the battle to the point where you're just using the Revive ability to | | keep up without really risking yourself, I highly recommend drawing 100 | | of the Ultima spell, it's the best junctioning magic overall in the | | entire game, and you can really stock up on it here if you try. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o The best prize of all is of course the most powerful Guardian Force in the game, assuming you drew it from Ultima Weapon.

Some of these aren't even they're just things you can check out everything below if to pick everything up. Rinoa Card - The Rinoa card is first heading to Deling City

finding Rinoa's, General Caraway in his house. He says he has his daughter's card but he never really plays it. In order to get him to play it you need to purposely lose the Ifrit Page 152

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Card to him, after that you can win the 'Rinoa Card.' When you speak to him he will tell you that he doesn't have the Ifrit Card anymore, he lost it to someone else. That person happens to be Martine formally of Galbadia Garden. He is sitting outside the mayor's house on the right, in Fisherman's Horizon. Siren Card - Head to the Dollet pub and challenge the manager to a game of cards, you can win the 'Siren Card.' Winning against him also prompts him to open up the back room where you can find 'Occult Fan II' in the magazine pile. Doomtrain GF - In order to acquire the Doomtrain Guardian Force you first need to acquire the Solomon Ring from Tears' Point near Esthar. Once that is in your possession you next need six Steel Pipes, six Remedy+ and six Molboro Tentacles. To get six steel pipes head to the forest area beside Galbadia Garden, there you can fight an enemy called Wendigo and Mug Steel Pipes from it. For Remedy+ simply get a bunch of Remedies and use the Med Lv Up ability on them. Lastly for six Molboro Tentacles head to the world map area outside Tears' Point and you can battle Molboros. Use the Mug ability or wait until it drops enough of them and use the Solomon Ring in your inventory. Island Closest to Heaven/Hell - This isn't exactly a sidequest, just by far the best place to level up in the game. Take a look at your world map, on the large Western Galbadian continent going off the West side is a long string of islands. Well the very last island, the furthest West island is the Island Closest to Hell. It's an oddly shaped island but you can tell if it's the right one two ways, first of all the monsters are super powerful, second of all when you go into the menu it says "Island Closest to Hell" at the bottom. The Island Closest to Heaven is a smaller island somewhere on the East side of the world, I can't quite remember correctly, it's just off the coast of the continent I believe but it really doesn't matter, it's just a crappier slightly easier version of the Island Closest to Hell. There's Page 153

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 two great things about this island, first like I said it's the best place to level up in the game. Second of all the outer edge of the island is surrounded by invisible draw points for the best magic spells in the game, Ultima, Holy, Flare, Triple, Full-Life, you name it. Just junction the Enc-None ability and run around the edge tapping the X button. Go off and do other things then come back and they will be full again! It's awesome. For leveling up here what I like to do is have Squall with 100 Death spells junctioned to his StAtk, it doesn't work on all enemies but at least half the enemies you fight here can be killed instantly. Also note that you should acquire the Odin GF first, nothing beats level up when Odin comes and quickly takes out a Malboro or a Ruby Dragon. The only thing this place isn't great for is AP, but... Cactuar Island - Not really a sidequest but by far the best place in the game to acquire AP. If you have obtained Jumbo Cactuar already then you know where this is, it's the small island off the coast of the large desert on the Centra continent. Around this island you will only fight Cactuar enemies which each give 20 AP when defeated. The problem is that they are hard to hit and run away from battle, so here's what to do to maximize your AP: Take everyne but Squall out of your party (just kill | them off if you have to.) Squall has perfect hit rate meaning he will never miss with his attacks. Equip the "Initiative" ability so you can always attack at the beginning of the battle and junction either Haste or better yet, Triple, to your speed stat. With this you should be able to defeat at least two or three Cactuars per battle and really rack up AP. Combine that with the Island Cloests to Hell and within a matter of hours you'll be ready to take on virtually any boss. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Leftovers | (000T7) Page 154

This final section is to make aware of sidequests that exist that are NOT covered by the various reasons, mostly due to they take a long time and the

them just aren't worth it, but some of the rewards are unique like the Chicobo Card and the PuPu Card so for those trying to get everything there is to get, you might want to check out some of the indepth sidequest specific guides on GameFAQs for the following sidequests: Chocobo Forests - This sidequest will bring you from forest to forest around the world blowing whistles and grabbing a few crappy items here and there. Ultimately it will get you the Chicobo card if you manage to finish it. UFO - There are a number of locations around the world you will come across odd UFO sightings, eventually this leads to the acquisition of the PuPu card. Shumi Village - The Shumi Village is the village of people of the same race as Master NORG. There is a sidequest available there you might want to check. Obel Lake - Head for Timber and look around for a kind of peninsula thing to the North. When you examine the edge you will get a message prompt, this is the beginning of a lengthy sidequest to yield some crappy items.

Find the name of the boss in the table of contents and then ctrl+f the code beside it to find the boss you're looking for. If you printed the guide or can't do that for some reason simply read the code beside the name of the boss and find it manually, they're in order so it shouldn't be too hard at all. - Examine your study panel and get the two GFs assigned to you - Leave Balamb Garden and meet up with the person waiting for you outside - Head for the nearby Fire Cavern past the forest - Select a time limit that suits your abilities - Make your way through the cavern - The lower the timer is when boss defeated the better your score O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 6 | Hit Points: 1068/1068 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....Absorb | | | Strength......High | Ice......Weak | (000E1) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Very High | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Very Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Ifrit is the Fire Guardian Force so obivously you're not going to want to | | be casting a lot of fire magic on this boss, lest you want to keep | | healing him over and over again.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 you need to | | heal simply use the draw command and then cast Cure on either of your | | party members. Ifrit has a couple of basic attacks. First of all he | | will cast the Fire spell on your party quite often which only deals around | | 50 damage so you should be able to survive against this easily. After the | | boss has taken a certain amount of damage he will change his tactic and | | begin using a new type of attack. The jumping body check will hit one of | | your party members for about 150 damage which can be dangerous if you're | | hit more than once so if this occurs be sure to heal up quickly after. | | Now here's something to keep in mind, the time limit you have does not | | include leaving the cave, meaning that you shouldn't be worried about | | leaving time for you to escape after the battle is over. In fact your | | upcoming SeeD rank is actually influenced more positively the LESS time | | you have on the clock when you defeat Ifrit, meaning ideally you should | | get his health down as low as possible and then strike the final blow | | when the timer is at about ten seconds or so. It won't make a huge | | difference, and once you receive your rank it's only the basic level, | | to can upgrade it anyway, but it's nice to start off high. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Head to your room (Dormitory) and get changed - Meet everyone outside and drive the car to the town of Balamb - Upon arriving in Balamb switch over to the sub - Make your way down the path avoiding talking to people to reach the tower - Ride the elevator up and battle the boss at the top O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS (Red) | Level: 8 | Hit Points: 640/640 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000E2) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | Page 157

Elvoret has quite a | | lot of hit points and good strength to back it up, certainly the first | | boss fight in the game that provides any challenge at all. Elvoret will | | use a normal claw attack that deals roughly 100-150 damage to a single | | character. It is good to note that you can draw the Cure spell from | | Elvoret, so if anyone is hurt simply draw-cast the Cure spell directly | | from Elvoret to make things easier. Have your party attack and use | | limit breaks if they get the, In order to use a limit break you need to | | have the character to the point where their health appears in yellow | | (not a "requirement" per se, but rarely occurs otherwise.) When their | | HP is in yellow there's a random chance that increases the lower their | | current HP gets that you'll hear a noise and see a flashing Page 159

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 arrow beside | | the attack command. In this circumstance hold right and use the limit | | break. Just so you know, Squall's Renzokuken executed perfectly with | | Water junction on strength can deal more than 1500 damage. Back to the | | actual battle again, by far Elvoret's most dangerous attack is the | | kind of tornado breath he uses that deals almost 180 damage to every | | member of your party. To restore after this has occurred have them all | | draw-cast Cure of if Selphie has a limit, Do Over until you find the | | Full-Cure. This is about all that Elvoret can do besides another Thunder | | attack so use normal attacks to the best of your ability and don't be | | afraid to summon your GFs, especially if you're learn the Boost ability. | | | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Escape back the way you came as fast as possible O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 10 | Hit Points: 5770/5770 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000E4) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..Weak | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...Immune | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | The giant sub-optional mechanical spider boss is one heck of a monster to | | be fighting.

There are two normal attacks, one where the boss | | grabs you and deal damage, the other where it kind of fires a projectile | Page 160

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | from its leg. These only hit one person and don't amount to much at all. | | The next more dangerous one does about the same damage, but to your | | entire party, the boss knocks you backward, but still no big deal. The | | most dangerous attack you need to watch out for is the Ray-Bomb where the | | boss fires a beam that will send you into the air and deal about 100 | | damage to everyone, somewhat painful but still barely half as bad as | | Elvoret's most powerful attack. This boss' strengths don't lie in its | | attacks but rather in its whoppingly huge hit point total, luckily you | | aren't actually supposed to kill this boss. Once you've done about 1500 | | damage the boss will fall to the ground and begin to repair itself. At | | this point it becomes possible (and pretty much required) to hold L2+R2 | | to escape from the battle. In order to deal that required 1500 damage | | easily all you need to do is summon Quezacotl once or twice and the boss | | will go down. Now here's an interesting fun fact, it IS possible (albeit | | very difficult) to kill this boss. Note that speed is a requirement | | since it will eventually repair itself, you must destroy the boss before | | this happens and there's only one way to do this. You'll need a character | | with Quezacotl junction and 100 Water junctioned to their magic stat. | | Quezacotl needs to know Boost, for sure, as well as SumMag+10%, SumMag+20% | | and hopefully even SumMag+30%. You will also want the highest possible | | compatibility you're willing to work for so the person can do the | | summoning quickly since like I said, speed is important. Your reward for | | defeating the boss is a whopping 50 AP for all your guardian forces, that | | reward is quite decent for the work it takes to actually prepare to | | beat the thing. Either way it still doesn't stop it from chasing you, | | which is actually kind of nice because it makes it possible to defeat the | | boss multiple times (I'm not 100% on that point however.) | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o Page 161

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | your time in the long run. The boss only really has one single attack, | | it kicks the little Raldo things at your party for about 30 damage. | | Sometimes when it gets angry it will lift the things off the ground and | | drop them on a single member of your party for about 50 damage. You may | | notice this does not fit the example of a what bosses in a game normally | | do, and this is of course "get progressively harder." Instead this boss | | opts to actually be easier than the previous bosses you faced, so all you | | really need to do is attack or start summoning some Guardian Forces in | | here. To add more insult to injury in the boss' case he is very | | susceptible to Sleep attacks meaning if you've got Sleep junctioned on | | your weapon or if you just simply cast a sleep spell then you can | | pretty much keep the boss dozing for the entire battle which is kind of | | nice. The Raldo enemies don't actually attack on their own so while the | | main boss is asleep you can do pretty much anything you want without | | fear of being attacked. Note that one single Renzokuken can kill this | | boss in a single turn. Once the boss is dead then the Raldo enemies will | | start attacking, they're actually far harder than the boss since their | | normal attack does as much as Grenaldo's stronger attack and since there | | are three of them, they attack three times per turn. Ouch. It still | | only takes a single summoning of Quezacotl to take them out though. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Go back to your room and go to sleep - Find and speak to Headmaster Cid out front of the Garden in the morning - Speak to him again to get an item - Save your game and use that item on the world map O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 9 | Hit Points: 8000/8000 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000E6) Page 163

You have to understand how powerful gravity magic can be, and if | | you don't then Diablos is going to show you whether you like it or not. | | Diablos has three main attacks that it uses. A normal physical attack | | that deals just over 200 damage, this is his most dangerous attack by | | far and you're going to be very relieved to know that he rarely uses it | | for reasons explained soon. His second attack is the Demi spell which | | is a basic gravity spell that shouldn't do much damage to your party at | | all. The most powerful spell Diablos has is of course the Gravija which | | takes approximately 75% of the HP off of everyone, but again, like Demi | | this is a gravity based attack meaning that even if you only have one | | hit point, it cannot kill you. That's what makes the normal attacks so | | dangerous, it's the only attack he has that can actually kill you, the | | rest are just for severely weakening you. The two most important | | characters in this battle are Squall and Selphie, it really doesn't matter | | what you do with Zell. Squall should have 100 Water magic junctioned to | | his weapon, and if you still don't have that yet you can simply run down | | to the shore right now and fight a couple battles to get five Fish Fin | | items and refine them. With this, his Renzokuken limit break will be | | extremely powerful. Couple this with that fact that gravity magic can | | only weaken you, not kill you, and there should be quite a few | | opportunities to use your limit break. Basically the tactic Page 164

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 is, while | | Diablos is casting his magic you should draw and cast Demi on him which | | will deal over 1000 damage at the start but get gradually weaker. Also | | note that using draw on Diablos fails quite often. Next, when he has used | | Gravija and your characters' HP is in the yellow, cycle through until | | Squall's limit comes up and then use that on the boss. During this time | | (while Rough Divide is going is best) you should have Selphie's limit. | | Keep using Do Over until you find the Full-Cure spell in there, it isn't | | too rare. This will fully restore your party to max and you can start the | | cycle all over again. Doing this should give you the edge you need. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Head to the town of Balamb - Go to the station and buy a ticket for 3000 Gil - While on the train go into your private compartment - Head up through the forest to reach a city - Follow the road to the Galbadia Hotel and go downstairs - After the scene speak to the guy at the desk - In Timber, give the man the password "But the owls are still around" - Go upstairs and speak to the girl in the bedroom - Return to the ground and listen to their plan - Speak to Watts when you are ready - Run across the top of the train inputting the codes when prompted - When it's all over enter the new train car O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 12 | Hit Points: 778/778 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000E7) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Moderate | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Moderate | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o-----------------Page 165

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 is use the | | draw command on the boss and cast his Esuna spell on whichever character | | has been affected, since Esuna will remove any abnormal status effect, | | not just one in particular. His final attack is an arm swipe that deals | | nearly 200 damage to a single character and can be quite dangerous. | | Let's talk about how to actually defeat this boss, there are a couple ways | | of doing it. If you have any Wizard Stones you can refine perhaps just | | one of them into some Firaga magic and really exploit his weakness to | | fire, but this is still the far more complicated way. Note that this | | boss carries the undead property, meaning that not only is he weak to | | holy based magic but also to cure based magic. If you cast the Cure spell | | on this boss he will take damage rather than gain life, and of course you | | can see where this is going to lead. Have one of your characters minimum | | able to use the Item command in battle. Select Item, then choose one of | | the Elixirs you should have obtained recently. Use the Elixir on | | Gerogero to find out what an easy weakness it is.

The best way to do this is through the use of Guardian | | Forces and Squall or Zell's limit breaks if you can get them. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Boss (Large) | Level: 15 | Hit Points: 2468/2468 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000EA) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Moderate | Earth....Immune | | | Spirit........Moderate | Poison...Weak | | Page 168

First | | of all, Sacred is pretty much the same as he was in the previous | | battle. He'll use his normal attack every single turn and heal HP while | | doing it. It's the Minotaur who provides the real challenge in this | | battle. He has a normal attack just like Sacred does that deals about | | the same amount of damage. He also has an attack called Mower, which | | pretty much "mowers" across you party and deals normal attack damage to | | everyone in your party. This is all well and good, in fact the fight | | would be easy if that's all it was, but that's not all it is. The | | Brothers are able to use a special combination attack called Mad Cow. | | This attack is basically an earthquake attack that will shake the ground | | violently and deal serious damage to everyone in your party, about 400 | | damage to every one of them. If you're not prepared then this attack | | will totally wipe you out. Here's what you need to do to stay alive and | | win this battle. First use the draw command and notice that they carry | | the Protect spell, this is good because you're going to need it. Cast it | Page 169

Now here's where | | you hope you were able to stock a lot of those Float spells. It's best | | if you distribute them among your party so you can cast it quickly. Use | | Float on everyone in your party, this will make it so the earthquake | | spell Mad Cow can't even touch your party members and you take no | | damage. As if this wasn't nice enough, cast Float on both Sacred and | | Minotaur. Their ability to heal comes from some kind of bond with the | | Earth so when they are separated from it (floating in the air) that | | healing ability disappears and you are free to start smashing. When they | | are no longer healing, simply a couple casts of both Shiva and Quezacotl | | each should be enough to eliminate both of them simultaneously. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Return to Deling City and give the guard the ID number - Speak to General Caraway inside - Follow him outside and walk around the city - Speak to him once again inside his house - Have Quistis' party return to the house - Climb up the boxes as Rinoa up to the top and find the woman - As Quistis grab a wine glass and place it in the statue's hand - As Squall, navigate between people and climb the same boxes as Rinoa O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 12 | Hit Points: 944/944 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....High | Fire.....Immune | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000EB) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....Weak | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...Immune | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o-----------------Page 170

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 -------------| | These bosses have pathetically low HP totals, so low that it's well... | | pathetic. With less than 1000 HP a piece you can easily eliminate them | | with a few normal attacks from Squall as .long as he has a decent magic | | spell junctioned, however don't be too quick to eliminate them. Most | | important of all the first thing you should do is the the Draw command | | and draw the Carbuncle Guardian Force from either of the bosses. While | | doing this also note the bosses carry the Cure spell and the Esuna spell, | | both will come in handy for this battle. The Iguions will most often | | use a normal slash attack that deals about fifty damage or so, there are | | two other attacks you need to watch out for. The first is the more | | uncommon of the two, while both bosses are still alive they can team | | up and use the Resonance attack which will deal about 250 damage to both | | party members, you'll likely need to cure after being hit by that. The | | more common of the two is the Magma Breath which hits for decent damage | | to a single character but also has the added effect of inflicting the | | gradual petrify status, meaning a number will appear above the character's | | head and when that countdown reaches zero, the character turns to stone. | | In order to prevent this simply draw-cast the Esuna spell and use it on | | the character to fix them. As for offenses, Squall's attack is great and | | Renzokuken should be able to take one of them down in a single use. The | | best thing however is the Brothers GF. Not only is it strong but it | | exploits their weakness to Earth, if you have Boost, instant kill there. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Go back and examine the trap door in the hall - Make your way through the sewers with Quistis O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 19 | Hit Points: 1076/1076 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | Page 171

Even though you're only | | fighting with Squall, about 1000 HP isn't that much to take off anyway. | | Seifer has a couple of main attacks, first he of course has his normal | | Gunblade slash. Seifer will also use the Fira spell which deals over | | 200 damage to Squall and can become quite dangerous. There are two ways | | to deal with this. The first is to junction Fire to your Elem-Def, but | | the far easier way is to simply summon the Carbuncle GF and then all of | | Seifer's magic will be reflected back onto him, not only preventing the | | damage to you, but inflicting damage upon him. Even if Seifer does | | manage to get Squall's HP low enough, one use of Renzokuken will | | totally obliterate Seifer with any decent spell junctioned. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 11 | Hit Points: 4300/4300 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000ED) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Low | Earth....N/A | Page 172

Although | | it opens with only Squall against her, Irvine and Rinoa will quickly | | join the fray. Edea is equipped with powerful magic spells, the highest | | level of their kind like Thundaga, so your curative abilities had better | | equal her offensive capabilities. Of course there is one surefire way | | of standing up to these spells and it's the same tactic you used for the | | previous battle, summoning Carbuncle and having Reflect on your entire | | party will ease the difficulty significantly. Edea in one respect is | | unlike Seifer, she will not cast powerful magic and do harm to herself, | | instead she will use the Dispel spell over and over, What Dispel does is | | remove the Reflect status from a party member. Fortunately there is | | still one good thing about this, since Dispel only targets one person at | | a time she will waste three turns Dispel-ing your entire party after | | which you can simply summon Carbuncle again, all the while attacking her | | with your most powerful GFs and physicals. Her physical defenses are her | | weak point so rather than working out a bunch of powerful magic and such, | | sometimes it's easiest to rely on brute strength here if your characters | | have the junctions to back it up. One interesting facet about this | | battle is that victory is not actually required, the outcome after the | | battle remains unchanged regardless of whether you actually win or not, | | the only difference is that you don't get the AP bonus if you lose. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - That's the end of the first disc - Leave the house and head to the bar to speak with the woman - Leave the bar and run to the bottom of town then back again - Speak to the woman in the bar and go rest in your room - Speak to all your party members Page 173

This fight is somewhat similar to the | | fight with Diablos. The robots have an attack designed to be quite | | powerful and able to weaken you called Micro Missiles. Micro Missiles | | can't ever actually kill you, instead what it does is take off half of | | your current HP, so even if your party is really strong this attack is | | still going to hurt you. After using Micro Missiles the enemies will | | rely on their fast speed and moderately powerful physical attacks to | | knock off whatever remaining HP you have left which is why it is very | | important to heal in this battle. They use their physical attacks a lot | | more often than Diablos did so the chances of actually being killed are a | | lot greater, but at least the attacks aren't too strong. To eliminate | | these enemies I prefer to just let Micro Missiles take Squall's HP down a | | bit and then just blow them away with Renzokuken, but considering their | | weakness to thunder magic, a Boosted Quezacotl can work just as well. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Begin to cross the bridge and shimmy to the right when you get the chance - Head left through the bars and board the train - Drive to the Missile base West of here Page 176

I'll assume you chose the ten minute timer, | | so even if you didn't, obviously a strategy that will kill the boss | | quickly will benefit you anyway. In terms of offense, the boss has all | | the bases covered. In fact this is the first boss with an attack that | | has quite a good chance of killing you even at full HP, so Guardian | | Forces with HP Junction ability are going to help out quite a bit. | | Believe it or not the boss only has two attacks. The first is a physical | | blast of gunfire to a single character which deals about 200 300 damage. | | This is the attack you're going to see most often so it's a good idea | | to do what you can to lessen the damage. The boss is stocked with the | | Protect spell which will reduce the damage taken from the gunshot attack | | by 50%. Draw and cast it on all your characters at the beginning of the | | battle. If you chose ten minutes doing this is optional, as it does | | admittedly waste a turn. The next attack the boss has is the much more | | dangerous one. The boss will use a single turn to prepare for the beam | | cannon and then let loose on the next one. The beam cannon does about | | 900 damage to a single character and cannot be weakened by Page 179

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 either the | | Protect or Shell spells the boss is carrying. From this point on, the | | boss will no longer announce the Beam Cannon, it will just fire the | | cannon peridoically. As for killing the boss quickly and efficiently, | | this job falls solely in the capable hands of the Quezacotl Guardian | | Force which is so much more effective than anything else, with the | | possible exception of limit breaks. You're not going to have time to | | be summoning GFs with all of your characters, so assign your most | | powerful magic user to be the summoner of Quezacotl, and the reamaining | | two characters should just focus on using physical attacks enhanced by | | junctioned magic for the entire battle. Boost is the most important | | ability to have for Quezacotl followed by SumMag+10% and the ones that | | follow, you're going to want to be able to deal more than 1000 damage | | per cast. The boss has 6000 HP approximately and for every 1000 damage | | dealt, one of the six pods on its head will explode. When the boss | | gets down to two pods it will use the powerful Beam Cannon on EVERY | | turn, totally obliterating your party. At this point it doesn't matter | | how bad the idea sounds, you need to go on an all out offensive and take | | the boss down as quickly as possible. If you're looking for a way to | | effectively survive as long as possible, note that Siren L Mag-RF | | ability combined with Tents, Cottages and Wizard Stones should provide | | a good deal of Curaga spells which will boost your hit point total to | | the 3000-4000 range. After the boss has been defeated, three more | | soldiers pop out, but a single GF cast should eliminate those guys. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Enter Balamb Garden and check every single place to try and find Cid - After visiting the infirmary go meet Xu in the front hall - Follow her up the Cid's third floor office - Ride the elevator down to the basement - Make your way along and turn the handle in the room to open the floor Page 180

The Oilboyles have three | | attacks. The first is of course a normal physical attack that deals | | moderate damage to a single party member and can be weakened by the | | Protect spell (which you would have to cast yourself since neither of them | | have it available to draw.) The next attack is probably the most | | dangerous, the Sonic Wave, because it hits your entire party. The damage | | will usually range anywhere between 300 - 500 damage to everyone. Lastly | | the boss has the ability to shoot oil at you which does more damage than | | any other attack, between 600 - 800 damage, and can inflict the Darkness | | status on a character. It's a good thing the boss carries the Esuna | | spell, if any of your characters gets inflicted with Darkness simply | | draw-cast the Esuna spell to remove the ailment. This does not apply to | | Squall however, Squall automatically has 255% accuracy right from the | | beginning of the game, which basically means it's a physical impossibility | | for him to actually miss, the Darkness status has no effect on Page 181

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 least one | | person with a decent strength physical attack, that person is probably | | going to be Squall. Here's how the battle works at the beginning. The | | two orbs, left and right, have three different colour states: Blue, | | yellow and red. They start off as blue and gradually move toward red. | | In red state they are capable of casting powerful magic and doing | | a good deal of damage to your party with magic like Tornado, or other | | status effecting spells like Silence and Darkness. The trick is however | | that each time an orb is hit, it reverts to a previous state, so red | | would change to yellow and yellow to blue. It doesn't matter how weak | | or strong the hit is either. You main goal at the beginning of the battle | | to to destroy the NORG Pod which has about 2000 HP. To beat the first | | part of the battle without even taking damage simply do this. Have | | Squall attack the NORG Pod. Wait a second until the two orbs turn yellow | | and have your other two characetrs physically attack the two orbs so they | | change back to blue. Keep doing this over and over until the NORG Pod | | is destroyed and the real NORG shows his face. Now get something straight | | right now. When NORG has been revealed the first thing you need to do | | is use the Draw command and draw the Leviathan Guardian Force from the | | boss. DRAW LEVIATHAN! Get your attention? Good. Once that's out of | | the way you can start attacking. Unfortunately there is no longer any | | way to beat the boss without it attacking, NORG will begin to use his | | magic on you so now you have to focus on hitting those two orbs as | | well as keeping your party fully healed at all times, it's quite | | dangerous. Some of NORG's attacks include a basic Water spell that | | hits one single character, as well as a basic Blizzara spell that hits | | one character as well. Notice you can Draw Shell from the boss, it may | | be a good idea to draw-cast Shell on all characters in your party to | | try and reduce some of the damage you take. Another of NORG's Page 184

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 attacks, | | the Psycho Blast is basically just a powerful attack that does 700 - 800 | | damage to one character. NORG also has the ability to use Slow on | | someone so it takes longer for them to get turns. This will wear off | | eventually, but note that you can draw-cast the Esuna spell from | | NORG so if any abnormal status ailments occur, cure them quickly and | | get on with the fight. As NORG's hit points start to dwindle he will cast | | the Protect spell on himself to halve all physical damage he takes from | | that point on. He's so adamant about protecting himself in fact that | | often after he casts the Protect spell, he will cast it again before it | | wears off, and the spell will just miss, wasting one of his turns. If | | there's anything that will kill you in this battle it's going to be the | | Psycho Blast, when near death he just uses it over and over, be sure | | you've got some Curaga's in your magic inventory. When it comes to | | attacking the boss, since two of your teammates are going to be | | generally busy, I found that Squall simply normal attacking each turn | | was sufficient enough to drain his HP. If you can manage to let | | loose a Renzokuken on this boss, especially before NORG is able to cast | | the Protect spell on himself, it will totally annihilate him. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Head to the infirmary and find Cid - Go to the second floor balcony and speak to the people - Check the libary for the girl you're looking for - Leave the bridge and go to the second floor to reach Fishermans Horizon - Make your way to the mayor's house in the middle - Leave the house and go up, make your way right past the save point O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 24 | Hit Points: 7400/7400 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000EK) Page 185

The boss' gun attack is approximately | | two times as powerful as it was the first time. Also the boss probably | | has a bit more HP than it did last time. Basically it uses a normal | | gun attack most of the time that will deal between 300 and 400 damage to | | a single character. In order to weaken the damage taken from this attack | | all you have to do is draw-cast the Protect spell from the boss, it should | | still have it. Second is the beam Cannon which is about equally as | | powerful as it was in the last battle. 800 to 900 damage frequently | | can get pretty brutal so make sure either your characters have some | | decent magic like Curaga junctioned to their HP, or some decent magic | | like Curaga ready to cast when they get hit, or possibly both which would | | of course be ideal. When it comes to defeating this boss there are two | | easy ways to do it. One is to just let Squall's HP get as low as | | possible, have a good spell junctioned to his strength, and use | | Renzokuklen about once or twice to finish the boss off. The less | | dangerous way is of course to keep summoning the Quezacotl Guardian | | Force, when you boost it as much as you can it should be able to deal | | between 1500 - 2000 damage to the boss with a good hit. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Return to Balamb Garden and head for the Quad - Assign instruments to everyone here then go down and listen to the concert Page 186

Raijin on the other hand is a slightly different | | story. Raijin has one single attack, and really that's all he Page 187

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 needs. | | Rajin's only attack is a physical attack from his pole, it deals about | | 350 damage to one character and he's quite fast so you'll find it | | actually gets rather dangerous over time. Start the battle by summoning | | a Guardian Force to eliminate the two Galbadian soldiers. Summon | | something like Leviathan, if you summon Quezacotl then Raijin will gain | | life due to his absorbing of thunder based elemental attacks. After | | the soldiers have been dealt with, next you'll want to use one turn | | with all your characters to have them draw-cast the Protect spell that | | Raijin has on themselves. Since Raijin's only attack is a normal physical | | hit then obviously this is going to extend the battle for twice is long. | | When it comes to damaging Raijin there are a number of ways that work | | well, personally, like usual, I prefer to just waste him with Squall's | | limit break. With 100 Waters still junctioned to strength from the | | beginning of the game, as the best weapon you can currently get for | | him, Renzokuken should hit about six times for 1000 each time plus | | final attack he uses (if any.) Other people's limits can be just as | | effective like Zell's Duel or Irvine's shot. If physical attacks aren't | | your thing there's always summoning Guardian Forces over and over until | | you're sick of the animations, but at least you'll be protected during | | the casting time and they'll be taking damage instead of you. Now here's | | one more final tip to really make this battle easy. Before going into | | the fight junction 100 Sleeps to someone's physical attack, Raijin is | | susceptible to the Sleep spell so in theory you should be able to attack | | him over and over again without actually letting him get a turn. In the | | event he does get a turn it won't matter, because he also happens to | | lack an immunity to the Blind spell which makes it a lot harder for him | | to actually connect with a physical attack. Now you can't lose! | O=========================o==================o================== Page 188

There | | are quite a few things to consider for this battle, but I know exactly | | where to start. Fujin has the Pandemona Guardian Force. DRAW PANDEMONA | | FROM FUJIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Understand? Good. Now as for the | | actual battle here's how it works. In Raijin's case he still has the | | same physical attack he had outside the hotel, but if I'm not mistaken | | it's even stronger now (though not by much, maybe 50 - 100 points.) | | This really doesn't matter, what matters is his brand new Page 189

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 attack called | | the Raijin special which he will use randomly. The Raijin Special hits | | a single character for 800 - 900 points of physical damage. Raijin still | | has the Protect spell to be drawn from him so you'll want to get that on | | your characters as soon as possible, it cuts the damage taken from the | | Raijin Special in half. For Fujin, all she will do is use wind magic | | over and over. The two spells she uses are Aero and the much more | | damgerous Tornado. Aero hits a single character for about 200 - 250 | | damage while Tornado hits your entire party for 400 - 500 damage. Far | | more dangerous. Now, imagine you had 100 of the Tornado spell yourself | | already... what if you junctioned it to your Elem-Def... I imagine you | | would benefit quite a lot from Fujin's attacks, possibly even healed by | | them although it really doesn't matter and I'll get to the reason in | | just a second. You'll remember I said to draw the Pandemona Guardian | | Force from Fujin at the beginning. Well if you note her description when | | you scan her, it says her wind magic is based on the help of another | | being with wind power, this is the Pandemona Guardian Force. Once | | Pandemona has been drawn out of Fujin she is no longer able to cast any | | wind magic. From now until the end of the battle her only attack is | | called Zan. She throws her pinwheel at you for a pathetic 200 damage or | | so. Not only is this attack weak, but the damage is cut in half by the | | Protect spell. Fujin has just become totally useless and you need to | | focus all your attacks on Raijin. Note that all the status effects that | | worked in the last battle still work on Raijin, and even work on Fujin | | as well so it's quite easy to just put them both to sleep and let loose | | your most powerful Guardian Forces. Just remember that you still can't | | use Quezacotl, and while you don't have any wind based Guardian Forces | | at the moment, avoid spells like Aero and Tornado yourself. You can | | draw the Cura spell from Fujin if you party needs healing Page 190

Cerberus has a few basic attacks that he starts the | | battle off with but does eventually change his pattern after taking a | | certain amount of damage. Cerberus will start with a physical attack | | that is quite powerful. Having Protect on your characters might help | | but it also might cause a problem for reasons explained better in a | Page 191

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | moment. Cerberus' other primary attack is the Tornado spell, the best | | thing you can do is before the battle, refine as many Aero spells as you | | can (or better yet, Tornado spells if possible) and junction them to | | everyone's Elem-Def. This goes on for a few thousands damage, then once | | Cerberus has been hit for enough, he will cast Triple on himself. There | | are a few things you can do here. First of all understand that Triple | | is a spell that allows the caster to use not one, not two, but three | | magic spells in a single cast. Your first inclination might be to cast | | Reflect on your party using the Carbucnle Guardian Force or something of | | that sort. Doing so however will make Cerberus cast Dispel three times | | to remove your Reflect status. This has its benefits though, first, | | it wastes one of his turns. Secondly when he triple-casts the Dispel | | spell, it doesn't hit each one of you party members, it just gets used | | on three characters randomly so technically it could hit the same person | | three times causing him to use it again next turn or live with the fact | | that you can Reflect his magic. This is also what I meant about problems | | with Protect, Dispel will just take that off your party as well. Another | | option is for you to cast your own Dispel magic, since Triple is a magic | | state, Dispel will remove the Triple status from Cerberus causing him | | to cast it once again. Using these tactics you should be able to keep | | him bus and occupied while you attack. Cerberus will pretty much always | | have less than 10,000 hit points, regardless of level, which isn't very | | much at all. Use physical attacks to shave off his health throughout the | | battle. If you need to summon Guardian Forces, be sure not to summon | | Pandemona and be doubly sure not to summon Quezacotl, he is immune to and | | absorbs their damage respectively. Lastly I'll just outline what I did | | to win this battle personally. I took off all Guardian Forces from my | | characters and put them all on Squall, then I junctioned Cura to his | Page 192

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | hit points and Curaga to his vitality so that he had a fair bit of life | | and physical attacks would be severely weakened. Next I junctioned | | Aero to his Elem-Def. For abilities he had Str+20%, Str+40% and Mug. | | When the battle begins I cast Haste on Squall then attack about three | | times before the Spd-J Scroll is stolen. That scroll allows a Guardian | | Force to learn the ability to junction magic to speed, one of the most | | important stats you can improve. After this Cerberus was able to knock | | down Squall's hit points to a critical level. A single Renzokuken, with | | only his second level weapon and 100 Waters junctioned to strength was | | able to eliminate Cerberus with one use, it's an effective tactic. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Take the lower left door and go left to get the Card Key 3 - Head up from Cerberus and climb the stairs to the third floor elevator O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 25 | Hit Points: 8500/8500 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000EO) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Moderate | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........High | Poison...Weak | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | As usual, Seifer is all talk and no... walk. The point is that he pretty | | much relies on his physical sword attack for the entire battle, which | | isn't exactly weak, dealing three to four hundred damage each time, | | but it's so easy to just cast a cure spell and heal yourself from it. | | Seifer's only other attack is Fira, which is even weaker than Page 193

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 his | | physical attack. Seifer also happens to be too stupid to know the | | difference between a Reflecting character an a normal character. This | | with one single use of Carbuncle, he will spend half the battle casting | | Fira on himself, and he's perfectly happy to do it over and over again. | | Unfortunately this can't just be a simple no-nonsense fight, there of | | course has to be something that at least gives it some challenge, and in | | this case, it just so happens that there is. After losing about three | | quarters of his life, Seifer will get angry at Squall and use the Demon | | Slice. Unlike his other attacks, this one is daggerous, it will hit | | Squall for more than 1000 damage, and he doesn't just use it once. After | | he uses it the first time, he will randomly use it again after that point | | meaning you need to go on an all out offensive to make sure he never gets | | that chance. In order to maintain his... being alive... Seifer will start | | to use Hi-Potions every turn near the end of the battle, meaning you | | aren't even going to be attacked anymore, but if you can deal more than | | 1000 damage per round then you've got a problem. Use limit breaks or | | magic or whatever it takes to bring him down. Remember you probably just | | got the Cerberus Guardian Force, use it on your party to put them in the | | Triple status, then Triple cast some powerful magic on Seifer. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Save your game and go down a floor to the walkway above the front hall O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS (Female) | Level: 25 | Hit Points: 12,500/12,500 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000EP) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | Page 194

There | | are subtle differences between this fight and the last one, but mostly in | | your favour. Seifer's physical attack seems to be weakened a bit, he | | has less hit points and he won't use the Demon Slice attack. Also the | | item you can Mug from him has changed, you can now grab a Hero which is | | a very important type of item you'll want to have later in the game that | | temporarily makes a character invulnerable to attack. Once Seifer has | | been defeated, the battle against Edea will officially begin. Before you | | do anything, and I mean anything, use the draw command and take the | | Alexander Guardian Force from her inventory. DRAW THE ALEXANDER GF, | | DO NOT FORGET. There you go. As for attacks, the Sorceress has many of | | them, and powerful ones at that. First of all her Maelstrom hits all of | | your party members and takes away half of their current hit Page 195

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 points, but at | | least it can't kill them. It also inflicts a status ailment on them | | which I beleive is the Cursed status that does not allow you to use | | limit breaks, it can be cured with Esuna magic which fortunately can | | be drawn right from Edea. Edea also likes to cast Silence on most members | | of your party to prevent them from using magic. Since these people would | | be unable to use Esuna on themselves, you'll have to either hope that you | | have other party members who are not silenced, or that you have items you | | can use to get rid of it (Echo Screen or Remedy will do the trick). When | | if comes to damaging your party Edea will use the powerful Blizzaga | | spell over and over again. Lastly, and most dangerously, Edea has the | | ability to use Death magic, With a single cast she will kill off one of | | your party members. Having the Full-Life spell in your stock is a good | | thing for this battle, although prevention is the best form of treatment. | | Junctioning the Death spell yourself to your ST-Def will totally | | eliminate all danger from that spell. If you don't have death, note that | | junctioning Life and Full-Life to your ST-Def will also increase your | | resistance to death, perhaps not 100%, but it will certainly help. With | | all this though, Edea is not without her weaknesses, and the ones she does | | have are quite pathetic. First, Edea likes to cast Dispel magic on your | | party which is why it's hard to Reflect her Blizzaga spells. The thing is | | though, if you're not even trying to use Reflect at all, she will still | | spend time casting Dispel on your party for no apparent reason, the spell | | just misses and she wastes her turn. Worst of all for Edea is that she | | is susceptible to the Sleep spell. If you have 100 Sleeps junctioned | | to your ST-Atk, you can in theory just attack her over and over again, | | ending the battle without even giving her a turn. With an easy-to-exploit | | weakness like this you shouldn't have any problems. She has no immunities | | so all magic is equally effective, just don't forget to draw Page 196

First of all, as you can see from the | | elemental chart, you're definitely going to want to shy away from Guardian | | Forces like Ifrit and Pandemona since they will heal the Ruby Dragon, | | the same applies for pretty much any attack of those elements. The | | Ruby Dragon has two main attacks that it uses, those attacks are a claw | | slice that deals about 400 physical damage. The other is the Fira | | spell, you don't want to Reflect that or anything though since it will | | heal the Ruby Dragon. The thing to do is to just junction a bunch of | | Fire magic to your Elem-Def before the battle starts so that it doesn't | | really hurt you at all. Keep in mind that Laguna's limit is very | | powerful and you've got that great new Guardian Force, Alexander, that | | you can summon which deals Holy damage and exploits the dragon's | | weakness. One final effective tactic is to summon Cerberus Page 197

The Propagator's second attack is the Thundaga spell, junction | | Thundaga to your Elem-Def to either negate or absorbs the damage from | | this, no problem. Lastly the Propagator likes to use negative status | | ailments. Silence and Blind are the two it chooses. Ironically both | | of these spells work on the Propagator as well, while Silenced it cannot | | cast Thundaga, Silence or Blind, and when under the Darkness status, it | | can barely attack. This will leave you free to do whatever you want, | | but its HP total is quite low, by now you should have a powerful spell | | like Quake or Tornado junctioned to Squall's strength, and with that you | | will be able to take out all the Propagators without much of a hassle. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - When all of them are defeated go to the bridge and pilot the ship back - Do any sidequests you wish to do at this point O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level:20 | Hit Points: 7000/7000 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000ET) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....N/A | | Page 200

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Spirit........Very High | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | The great thing about this boss... is that he doesn't ever attack! You | | cannot lose! Well, except for the time limit, that makes things rather | | dangerous. Obviously you're going to want to avoid anything that takes | | a fair bit of time, usually that means avoiding Guardian Forces, which is | | probably a good idea for this battle. If I were you I would fly over to | | the huge desert where you will fight the Abyss Worm enemy. The Abyss Worm | | randomly drops Windmills, which are most likely Mug-able too, which can | | be turned into the Tornado spell with Quezacotl's T Mag-RF. Junction | | one hundred Tornado spells to Squall's strength and you'll really be in | | business for this battle. Like I implied, the best bet for winning is | | just using physical attacks, obviously the more time you had when you | | began the battle, the better your chances will be. You will find the | | Triple spell in Odin's inventory, not only is this one of the best spells | | in the game to junction to strength, it IS the best spell in the game to | | junction to speed, which is very very important. Get lots of Triples! | | Not only that, if you're looking to use magic as well as physical attacks, | | you can draw-cast the Triple spell from Odin onto your characters (or just | | summon Cerberus, that might be easier, but takes longer.) Really the | | only other thing you need to know is that he carries a Luk-J Scroll which | | you can Mug, the scroll is extremely rare, so try and grab it here. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 20 | Hit Points: 50,000/50,000 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000EU) | Page 201

Not only is the Tonberry | | King's HP total through the roof, his attack powereasily matches it. | | Tonberry King's normal attack will really hurt you, but the big damage | | comes from the Junk attack where all sorts of crap just falls down on | | your head. Both of these attacks can be reduced in damage if you have | | your party under the Protect status. Most of your support doesn't | | actually have to come out of your magic inventory since the Tonberry King | | is filled to the brim with helpful spells like Full-Life if you need to | | use them, maybe if you're strong enough you can even try to stock up | | on them too! When it comes to damaging the Tonberry King things get | | difficult. Obviously the Kamikaze method isn't as helpful since it isn't | | a one hit kill and you just lose the character, perhaps when you know the | | king is getting close to death you might want to use it provided you don't | | mind that character not getting any AP. Gravity too, is ineffective here. | | The Tonberry King is immune to it. Damage will have to come in the form | | of powerful Guardian Forces, physical attacks, or my personal favourite, | | limit breaks. By this point in the game you should have access to at | | least some Aura magic which makes it so your characters can use their | | limit breaks even if they have 9999 HP. If you do not have Aura magic | | then you'll have to either try to stick through the fight with a low | | HP total or go back to Guardian Forces and physical attacks like I said. | Page 202

This giant... thing | | attacks with three different attacks. First is a basic, moderately | | powerful stomp attack where he steps on you, the damage from this is | | negligible. The real damage comes with the Ker Plunk attack, Jumbo | | Cactuar falls to the ground and knocks your party into the air for a | | fair amount of damage to everyone. The final attack is the 10,000 | | Needles attack which not surprisingly deals 10,000 damage to a single | | party member. No matter how high your HP total is, and no matter how | | high your defense is, you cannot survive this attack. Lucky for you | | 10,000 Needles is ONLY a counterattack, meaning he'll only use it when | | you already attacked, so you don't need to worry about it while healing. | | For this reason though, given that the attacked cannot be survived, you | | need to come into this battle with either a hefty stock of the Full-Life | | spell, or Alexander's Revive ability, preferably both. When it comes to | | damaging Jumbo Cactuar, the best way to do it is by exploiting his | | severe weakness to Water. Given this, the easiest way to deal 9999 | Page 203

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | damage here is with Squall having a powerful spell junctioned to strength | | and 100 of the Water spell junctioned to his Elem-Atk. The second best | | way is by boosting the Leviathan Guardian Force as high as possible with | | as many SumMag+10% etc abilites learned as you possibly can. The one | | remaining thing you need to know is that once Cactuar has taken a lot of | | damage there is a chance he will run from battle. At that point you will | | always be given a warning message "Jumbo Cactuar is hesitating." There's | | not a lot you can do to keep him from running, your best bet is to just | | go nuts on the offensive and try to kill him before he gets away. If he | | does get away, he'll still appear on the world map, but all his HP will | | be restored. If you can't beat him, or need more abilities before you | | can do so, here's a great tip: around this island you will only fight | | Cactuar enemies which each give 20 AP when defeated. The problem is that | | they are hard to hit and run away from battle, so here's what to do to | | maximize your AP: Take everyne but Squall out of your party (just kill | | them off if you have to.) Squall has perfect hit rate meaning he will | | never miss with his attacks. Equip the "Initiative" ability so you can | | always attack at the beginning of the battle and junction either Haste or | | better yet, Triple, to your speed stat. With this you should be able | | to defeat at least two or three Cactuars per battle and really rack up AP. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 22 | Hit Points: 27,600/27,600 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......High | Ice......N/A | (000EW) | | Intelligence..High | Thunder..Immune | | | Dexterity.....High | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Low | Earth....Immune | | Page 204

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Spirit........Low | Poison...Strong | | | Evasion.......Very Low | Wind.....Immune | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | The king of dragons has challenged you to a battle, now all you have to | | do is defeat him to acquire his power as a Guardian Force. Bahamut has | | a number of dangerous attacks, in fact pretty much all of them are | | dangerous, just some moreso than others. Bahamut's primary attack is his | | strong physical claw attack, in fact that's where most of the damage in | | this battle is going to come from, so casting Protect on all of your | | party members is a really good idea. Bahamut's other two attacks are | | Thundaga and Tornado. You might think it a good idea to use Carbuncle and | | Reflect these two spells back at him, however think again. The spells | | are elemental thunder and wind respectively, both of which Bahamut is | | immune to, and you can't reflect Tornado anyway. The better idea would be | | to junction Thundaga and Tornado to your Elem-Def to absorb them and let | | Bahamut heal you. Lastly, and certainly not leastly, there is Bahamut's | | Mega Flare. This spell will easily deal of 3000 damage, meaning you're | | going to have to have something junctioned to your HP like Curaga, or | | you're just going to be dead. Brothers' HP+80% will certainly carry its | | weight in this battle as well, the bonus being with so much HP it will be | | quite easy to use a limit break. When damaging Bahamut, stick with | | physical attacks and limit breaks. With magic remember to avoid | | elemental spells he is immune to and the Pandemona, Brothers and Quezacotl | | Guardian Forces. Everything else is fair game, try to steal Hyper Wrist. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 22 | Hit Points: 74,200/74,200 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | Page 205

It may not be | | the hardest boss in the game, but it's certainly getting there, you had | | better be prepared well for battle before going off to fight this thing. | | Now before we get into battle there is something super important you | | absolutely have to do, draw the Eden Guardian Force. DRAW THE EDEN | | GF FROM ULTIMA WEAPON. It is by far the most powerful Guardian Force in | | the game, by far. Eden can deal like 40,000 damage, with the second best | | Guardian Force doing about 9999, it's a hell of a difference. Draw it. | | Now, on to Ultima Weapon. Most of the time he will start the battle | | with, and periodically cast throughout, the Light Pillar. Don't even | | think of it in terms of strength and power, just think of it as 9999 | | damage to a single person, no matter how hard to try to stop it, so just | | be ready immediately with either Alexander's Revive ability or the | | Full-Life magic spell. After he's done having fun with the Light Pillar | | it is likely he will move onto Meteor, a magic spell which hits for | | fairly weak amounts of damage, but hits randomly and numerous times so | | can prove quite dangerous. Of course like most other bosses, Ultima | | Weapon has a normal physical attack, but it isn't too strong, not even | | as strong as Bahamut's attack. We're still not done yet, Ultima Weapon | | has quite a few tricks up his sleeve. He uses an attack you probably | | haven't seen since the beginning of the game when fighting Diablos, the | Page 206

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Gravija attack is extremely dangerous, it cannot kill you, but sucking | | away about 75% of everyone's HP leaves them very vulnerable, it's times | | like this where it's good to have Leviathan's Recover ability handy. | | Ultima Weapon's last attack is Quake, for this preparation is your best | | bet. Sure you could waste time casting Float on all your characters, but | | why do that when you can just junction Quake to your Elem-Def before the | | battle. Anyway, with all that out of the way, really the only thing you | | are going to be paying attention to during the entire battle is the Light | | Pillar, it is very very annoying, as is the sound it makes. As for your | | party, there are three primary spells you're going to want to bring into | | this battle, Full-Life, Aura and Meltdown. Meltdown is one of the best | | spells in the entire game, the actual damage it deals is pathetic but | | that's not the point. It inflicts a special status that reduces the | | enemy's defense to zero, even bosses! After casting Meltdown you can | | tell if it worked if the boss turns a bright purple, that means it | | worked. After this the damage from all your physical attacks should | | increase dramatically. Cast Aura on Squall or get him down to low | | HP and he can probably take this boss down with a single Renzokuken, | | perhaps two depending on his weapon and magic junctioned. Don't bother | | with Mug, all he has is a crappy Three Stars. If you can get control of | | the battle to the point where you're just using the Revive ability to | | keep up without really risking yourself, I highly recommend drawing 100 | | of the Ultima spell, it's the best junctioning magic overall in the | | entire game, and you can really stock up on it here if you try. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Pilot the Ragnarok to the Lunatic Pandora O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS (Female) | Level: 18 | Hit Points: 10,400/10,400 | O=========================o==================o================== Page 207

Raijin focuses mainly on physical attacks like usual, it | | is Fujin who has changed quite a bit, she now has two powerful attacks. | | The first of the two is the ability to knock a single character down to | | one hit point. Draw-cast Curaga after this happens to stay alive. The | | second is the powerful Meteor spell which hits a fair number of times for | | low damage.

The probes can attach | | and come off at will, depending on whether they are attached or not | | the boss' attack pattern will change. The battle starts with the two | | probes attacked. In this state the boss can do little more than two | | things, a normal physical attack and another attack called Dual Homing | | Laser which deals moderate damage (less than 1000) to a single member but | | it's only a counterattack so you won't be seeing it if you aren't | | attacking. After awhile when the boss decides to let go of the probes, | | it usually launches the Corona attack at this point which can be | | extremely devastating. Corona hits every member of your party and | | automatically drops their HP down to one. During the time the boss is | | in this state basically all that will hapen is the two probes will use | | physical attacks for very low amounts of damage. Before going back into | | the normal state again, the boss likes to use the Medigo Flame which | | hits your party for more than 1500 damage each person in your party. | | To defeat the boss quickly, ignore the probes all the time, their defense | | is through the roof anyway. What you want to do is junction a good | | masgic spell to Squall's strength, then junction 100 of the Thundaga | | spell to his elemental attack so you can exploit the boss' weakness. | | Hopefully at this point you will be able to deal 9999 in a single hit, | | perhaps not but at least it will be enough to take him out. As a backup | | always have Quezacotl ready to summon, it will come in handy Page 210

Your | | attacks won't be as powerful as normal due to his high physical defense, | | but if you were to junction Bio to your Elem-Atk I can only imagine it | | would really help out.

There's a twist to this battle however, there are two | | enemies and one of them is Rinoa. If Rinoa is killed during the course | | of this battle then the game is over. You need to focus only on Adel | | while keeping Rinoa alive. This becomes somewhat difficult because Adel | | will absorbs some HP from Rinoa prior to every one of her attacks. For | | this reason it's important to have Leviathan's Recover ability handy or | | anything similar to that because you need to heal Rinoa quite often. | | Adel has three main attacks. The two weaker spells are Flare and Energy | | Bomber, these will deal around 800 damage to a single character. Far | | more powerful is the Meteor spell which as you are probably already aware | | of hits randomly and deals a moderate amount of damage. Assuming you | | can just keep healing Rinoa and yourself between this you Page 212

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 should be okay. | | In fact the best thing to do is just draw-cast the Regen spell from Rinoa, | | on Rinoa. This should keep her gaining HP just about fast enough to | | negate all the drain. After awhile Adel will start charging magical | | energy and skip a few of her turns. This is a great time to really go | | on the offensive and try to end the battle, because after she's done | | charging she'll let off the Ultima spell. It's not the most devastating | | thing you've ever faced but it will deal around 2000 damage to your entire | | party so if you aren't prepped for it then it could easily end the battle. | | When it comes to damaging Adel, you can't really use Guardian Forces at | | all since they target all enemies, which at this point still includes | | Rinoa. Obviously physical attacks are preferable. Limit breaks are iffy | | depending on who is using them. I did not come across this particular | | circumstance, but I imagine that if Squall ended his Renzokuken with a | | finishing move like Blasting Zone, it could possibly spell the end of | | Rinoa, be careful with things like that. Adel has a weakness to Wind so | | perhaps junctioning Tornado to your Elem-Atk before battle would be a | | good idea here. Before the battle is over try to Mug the Samantha Soul | | item from Adel. Also note that it is indeed possibly to mug from Rinoa, | | she's holding a number of Megalixir items, so if you want them... | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Pass through time as it compresses - Enter the Sorceress' huge enormous castle - Split into two parties and defeat all the bosses to unseal your abilities O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS (Phase Two) | Level: ?? | Hit Points: ?????/????? | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000P3) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | Page 213

The same | | applies to junctioning just the Flare spell to your Elem-Def. After the | | boss has taken a certain amount of damage it will drop its mask and | | change attack patterns. A new ability called Magic Summon allows the | | boss to summon a single enemy into the battle to fight with it. It seems | | like every time you kill the enemy the boss will just summon a stronger | | one, so ignore the enemy and focus and the Sphinx.

The easiest way to exploit this is not | | to exploit it at all, Tri-Point's HP total is so low that all you really | | need are non-elemental physical attacks anyway. Tri-Point has three basic | | attacks, a normal physical attack so weak that it will make you say | | "Damn... that's weak." The next is even more pathetic, not only will | | Tri-Point Scan one of your characters, after a couple of turns it might | | just Scan that same character again. To balance this weakness Tri-Point | | has a very powerful attack called Onrush capable of dealing over 2000 | | damage to a single person. As for attacking Tri-Point, like I said, | | physical attacks work great but there's something you have to watch out | | for. Make sure your whole party is junctioned to the maximum Page 215

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 with | | Thunder elemental magic. Tri-Point will counter every single attack with | | the Mega-Spark which hits everyone in your party for about 3000 thunder | | elemental damage, you can see why you would want to protect against it. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 14 | Hit Points: 7800/7800 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......High | Ice......Immune | (000P5) | | Intelligence..High | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....Immune | | | Spirit........Very Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Very Low | Wind.....N/A | | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Krysta is a large crystalline entity with an enormous resistance to | | physical attacks, so much so that they are almost ineffective. Krysta's | | only real attack, at least the only one that I saw, is a very weak | | physical claw attack. The way Krysta really kills your party is in the | | counterattack which deals 1000 damage or so to a single character and | | the counterattack occurs every single time Krysta takes damage without | | fail, even with magic. The one exception is that when you summon a | | Guardian Force, Krysta will not counterattack. Consider that summoning a | | GF will get you through physical defense and avoid counterattack, it's | | certainly a good way to defeat this boss. I avoid saying the best way, | | because it isn't. Krysta's HP total is low compared to most bosses, you | | should still have at least one character with a strong physical attack | | since you needed it at least for the first boss. Simply cast the | | Meltdown spell on Krysta to reduce its defense to 0, and smash Page 216

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 the thing. | | Be sure you keep a decent amount of HP with your party, once defeated | | Krysta will always end the battle with the Ultima spell, which will hit | | your entire party for about 2000 and can end the game even though you won. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS (Main) | Level: 10 | Hit points: 10,125/10,125 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000P6) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Very High | Earth....Immune | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....Weak | Holy (N/A) | |=========================+==================+================== =============| | BOSS (Drone) | Level: 10 | Hit Points: 1150/1150 | |=========================+==================+================== =============| | Hit Points....High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Low | Earth....Immune | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....Weak | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Similar to Krysta, Trauma has an incredibly high physical defense stat. | | Like the other boss it may be a good idea to cast the Meltdown spell and | | reduce his defense down to the bare minimum.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Guardian Force | | which will exploit his weakness to wind magic, or simply junctioning | | Tornado to your Elem-Atk (requires casting Meldown of course, unless | | your attack is high enough so that it just doesn't matter. Trauma | | has a couple attacks of his own, a physical attack that isn't even worth | | mentioning due to its weakness, and another attack called the Mega | | Pulse Cannon which is no pushover. The Mega Pulse Cannon doesn't | | quite live up to its name, but you'll be facing about 1000-1500 damage | | each time it connects. To try and balance out the numbers, Trauma likes | | to use its special abilities and create little drones for itself called | | Dromas. These are pretty much just copies of Trauma with the same | | attacks that deal about a quarter as much damage (and the name of the | | Mega Pulse Cannon changes to the Mini Pulse Cannon). They can be taken | | out with little effort and that's about all there is to the battle. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 10 | Hit Points: 30,000/30,000 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000P7) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Very High | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Very High | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Once again you're facing off against a boss with a sky high physical | | defense stat, I doubt I have to tell you the importance of either | | casting the Meltdown spell of summoning the Doomtrain Guardian Force, | | both have the same effect.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 specifically | | here because the boss is vulnerable to the Darkness status ailment and | | since he relies mostly on physical attacks this will really help you | | out in the battle. His physical attacks aren't too much to worry about. | | The normal attack and the Gigantic Sword attack deal approximately the | | same amount of damage, the difference is that the Gigantic Sword attack | | hits your entire party. When in the Darkness status, the Red Giant can | | barely hit you anyway, so pick away at him with attacks and magic spells. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Gargantua | Level: 14 | Hit Points: 11,400/11,400 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000P8) | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Very High | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |=========================+==================+================== =============| | Vysage | Level: 12 | Hit Points: 3576/3576 | |=========================+==================+================== =============| | Hit Points....High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | | | Intelligence..Low | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Low | Earth....N/A | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (Weak) | |=========================+==================+================== Page 219

Gargantua can be pretty nasty, causing both the Curse | | and Berserk status effects on any members of your party.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 high. | | Use Meltdown or Doomtrain and then start attacking, but note that the | | boss will almost always counterattack with the Counter Twist dealing | | over 1000 damage to whoever attacked. When not counterattacking the | | Gargantua is likely using the Evil-Eye which can deal damage as well as | | inflict curse. The fight can get nasty so have people ready with Siren's | | special ability Treatment, hopefully you've unlocked their use by now. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 21 | Hit Points: 20,500/20,500 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Low | Ice......N/A | (000P9) | | Intelligence..High | Thunder..Absorbs | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....Weak | | | Defense.......Low | Earth....Weak | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Catoblepas is no pushover like someof the other bosses have been to | | be honest, but there are ways to make this battle manageable and even | | easy to an extent. To make it easy all you have to do is junction 100 | | of the Thundaga spell to your Elem-Def. You might even want to junction | | some more Thunder magic to simplify things further. Catoblepas' most | | common attack by far is the Thundaga spell, and if you're gaining HP | | each time it is being cast then you really have an advantage here. | | Things that will still deal damage are the boss' weak normal attack | | and the rather aptly named "Deadly Horn" which can easily do more than | | 1000 damage to a single party member. The most powerful attack that | | Catoblepas will use is the summon spell which is somewhat Page 221

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 similar to | | Quezacotl, the good news is that it is indeed thunder elemental so you'll | | be healed close to 2000 HP if you've maxed out your thunder Elem-Def. | | For damaging the boss you can pretty much relax since you'll be healed | | so often and just focus on physical attacks each turn. Things that | | exploit his weakness like junctioning the Water/Quake spell to your | | Elem-Atk or summoning Leviathan are always a good idea. Assuming you | | are able to reach a state where the amount the boss heals you roughly | | equals the amount of damage you take, so that you can just stand around, | | then there's one other thing you will definitely want to do. Sit there | | and draw-draw-draw until you have 100 of the Meteor spell, well worth it. | | Not only is the magic strong but its the second best overall junctioning | | spell in the game. The last thing to note of course is that Catoblepas | | will use Meteor himself before dying after you're dealt the finishing | | blow, son't let your HP dip before killing the boss or you'll be sorry. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 31 | Hit Points: 57,200/57,200 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....Strong | | | Strength......High | Ice......N/A | (000PA) | | Intelligence..High | Thunder..Strong | | | Dexterity.....Low | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....Immune | | | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....Immune | Holy (N/A) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | The Tiamat only has one single attack, its Dark Flare.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 free to | | attack the boss all you want without risking yourself at all. Each turn | | Tiamat will charge the attack by adding another letter to the Dark Flare | | until he actually uses it. Each of these can be considered an attack so | | let's take a look at how they affect your party. The "D" attack is | | quite weak, as is the "Da" attack that usually follows. "Dar" is equally | | as weak as its two predecessors. After "Dar" Tiamat will use an attack | | that just comes out of nowhere, the "Dark F" attack will catch most | | players by surprise who expected to see only a single letter added. | | Following this the new trend continues with the "Dark Fla" attack which | | still isn't very strong. Tiamat then breaks the cycle of weak no-damage | | attacks with its "Dark Flare." Dark Flare can deal anywhere from | | 2000-4000 damage to your entire party but here's the deal. I'm not quite | | sure what element the attack is, but it's either fire, ice or thunder | | because for me Squall was immune to ech one of them, each time Tiamat | | use Dark Flare Squall would be healed for over 3000 HP making the battle | | physically impossible to lose short of attacking yourself. Given this | | fact you can pretty much guarantee a win, with that take your time to | | draw any magic spells you want and finish off Tiamat with physicals. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 100 | Hit Points: 1,000,000 (Approx)| O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....Absorbs | | | Strength......Very High | Ice......Absorbs | (000PB) . | | Intelligence..Very High | Thunder..Absorbs | | | Dexterity.....Moderate | Water....Absorbs | | | Defense.......Very High | Earth....Absorbs | | | Spirit........Very High | Poison...Absorbs | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....Absorbs | Holy (Absorbs) Page 223

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Welcome to the battle against the boss that is super-ultra-mega hard but | | certainly NOT impossible to defeat. There are so many things you have | | to do in this battle I don't know where to start, I imagine it would be | | best to start with things to prepare before you actually start the | | battle itself. Here's what you're going to need before going into battle | | starting basically with the most important, Squall's Lionheart weapon. | | With the Lionheart weapon Squall is capable of using the Lionheart limit | | break afer Renzokuken which will bring his damage up past the 100,000 | | mark, very very important. To get the Lionheart you'll need Pulse Ammo | | which can be refined through Ammo-RF with Energy Crystals I believe | | can be obtained (Rare Item dropped) from Red Dragons which are at a high | | level. Laser Cannons (dropped by Mobile Type 8) will also refine into | | Pulse Ammo. Next we have the other massive damage dealer in this battle, | | the Eden Guardian Force. You'll need Eden to be as high a level as | | possible. SumMag+10%/SumMag+20%/SumMag+30%/SumMag+40% are all a must | | as is the Boost ability. (Just in case you still don't have a clue how, | | since I've heard people who don't know Boost actually does something and | | the game manual isn't clear, you boost Guardian Forces by holding select | | and tapping square.) Eden can easily be boosted to 255% since it takes | | so long to cast. Junction Eden on anyone but Squall since like I said, | | his limit break is by far the most important. Next, if you're at level | | 100 or any other level divisible by five for any of your characters they | | will need 100 of the Death spell junctioned to their St-Def since Omega | | Weapon will cast LV5 Death during the battle. Furthermore you'll need | | plenty of Aura magic most importantly, at least a couple Meldown spells | | (or Doomtrain, but keep in mind that heals Omega, not a big deal if you | | use it early.) Squall should have 100 Ultima spells Page 224

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 junctioned to | | strenth, or a weaker spell as long as his str stat is 255, junction | | abilities like Str+60% if need be. As many people as possible should have | | 100 Triples junctioned to speed as well. Finally it's a very good idea | | to use a Phoenix Pinion in a fight before the battle if you haven't | | already. Using a Phoenix Pinion will summon a Phoenix which revives your | | whole party. In battles after that the Phoenix will randomly appear | | when everyone in your party dies giving you at least some chance to make | | a comeback if you happen to get game over. Now there's something else | | that is rather important. Omega Weapon has abilities that will totally | | annihilate your party no matter what you do, for this reason you need to | | bring any of the following items you have into battle: Hero-trial, Hero, | | Holy War-trial, Holy War. These items have the ability to make either | | one character or an entire party invincible temporarily. For those of you | | who are totally bent on leaving your card stock in tact, you're going to | | be in a lot of trouble. There are the two Hero items you should have | | stolen from the battle with Seifer and perhaps some Hero-trials refined | | but beyond that, you'll have to hope the timing of these items will | | correspond with Omega's most powerful spells. The smart thing to do of | | course is realize you're trying to beat Omega any way you can, there's no | | one to play cards with anyway in the Time Compressed world, and refine | | the Laguna card into 100 Heroes and the Gilgamesh card into 10 Holy Wars. | | Now you're getting somewhere. (Laguna card is won from playing against | | Ellone and Gilgamesh is won from doing the CC Group sidequest.) Lastly of | | course, the usual suspects you should bring into the battle by common | | sense anyway: Revive ability, Recover ability, Auto-Haste ability, | | Full-Life spell and Curaga spell. Now it's time to enter the battle. | | Begin the fight by doing exactly the following: have your first character | | cast the Meltdown spell on Mega Weapon, repeat this if the Page 225

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 "defense equals | | zero" status does not connect. Have the next person cast the Aura spell | | on Squall and the last person use a Holy-War item to make your entire | | party invincible. Next turn whoever has Eden junctioned should summon | | it, preferably with 1000 compatibility (compatibility is raised in battle | | by summoning the Guardian Force often, or using a LuvLuv G item, refine a | | bunch of them from the Chubby Chocobo card.) Squall should definitely | | use Renzokuken on his next turn since you casted Aura on him, then hope | | and pray he ends it with Lionheart. Note that you cannot cast Aura on | | someone under the effect of Hero or Holy-War so you need to wait till it | | wears off, cast Aura on Squall and use another Holy-War. Omega Weapon's | | attacks are brutal of course. His physical deals thousands of damage to | | someone. He can cast both Meteor and Ultima magic spells. By far the | | most dangerous spell is the tetra Blast or whatever it's called, it hits | | your entire party for about 4000 damage like ten of fifteen times, | | not possible to survive which is why you need those Heroes and Holy Wars. | | That's the basic strategy, you get the idea, it's putting it into practice | | that's difficult, something always seems to pop up right when things are | | looking good, there is a small element of luck, hope it's on your side... | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o - Make your way up to the top and save before the final door O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 16 | Hit Points: 13,600/13,600 | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......High | Ice......N/A | (000PC) | | Intelligence..Very High | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....High | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......High | Earth....N/A | | Page 226

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Spirit........High | Poison...Weak | | | Evasion.......Very Low | Wind.....N/A | Holy (Immune) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Ultimecia starts the first battle by randomly choosing between your six | | party members who to face. Each time one of them is killed they are | | "Absorbed into time" and another person replaces them meaning that if | | you have a main party you wish to use, simply let her kill off those | | background characters and eventually your main party will come into play | | though it does give you a chance to take part in the battle with all | | six of your party members, take advantage of that. Ultimecia attacks with | | nothing but maguc spells, being a Sorceress after all, but this does give | | you one advantage. Spells like Thundaga, Tornado, Holy, Quake and all | | that, that deal elemental damage. You can jusction magic to your Elem| | Def so you are not only immune to them but perhaps healed by them. If you | | happen to have 100 Ultimas in your inventory, try junctioning them to | | your Elem-Def to boost yourimmunity to 100% for all elements and making at | | least one character virtually invincible for this battle. For damage | | must use whatever offensive means have worked thus far, personally I like | | Aura magic and limit breaks but if you want to blast her with Eden, go | | ahead. Doomtrain will exploit her weakness but stay away from Alexander. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | BOSS | Level: 25 | Hit Points: ?????/????? | O=========================o==================o================== =============O | Hit Points....Very High | Fire.....N/A | | | Strength......Moderate | Ice......N/A | (000PD) | | Intelligence..Moderate | Thunder..N/A | | | Dexterity.....High | Water....N/A | | | Defense.......Moderate | Earth....Weak | | Page 227

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | Spirit........Low | Poison...N/A | | | Evasion.......Low | Wind.....Weak | Holy (Weak) | |-------------------------o------------------o------------------------------| | Griever is the Guardian Force in Squall's mind that has now taken form. | | This boss has some nasty attacks like Doom which will put a death timer | | on your party's head. Other than that actually his attacks are almost | | impossible tp predict for one reason, he uses yours! Griever has the | | ability to draw-cast on your own team members meaning that he will pretty | | much randomly use magic from your inventory, so obviously if you keep | | a lot of crappy magic lying around in your stock this battle will probably | | be a lot easier. You need to take down Griever before he can take you | | down with your own magic. The boss' last attack is a nameless ability | | targets a party member and pretty much destorys every single stock of a | | random spell in their inventory which really sucks if it happens to be | | junctioned to an important stat. The most magic you have on your Elem| | Def the better since his magic is virtually random, but his HP total isn't | | to high so use your most powerful phsyicals to bring him down. After | | taking enough damage Griever will show his true power, the Shockwave | | Pulsar attack. I'm not even sure what this attack did to be honest, I | | couldn't see any damage dealt, it was like an instant kill. It wiped out | | my entire party (although the person with the most HP only had 3000.) | | Thanks to Phoenix's Rebirth Flame I was able to continue the fight but | | would definitely recommend being at maximum health before going on to try | | striking the final blow. After Shockwave Pulsar (which is Quistis' | | last limit spell by the way) the battle isn't over, Griever is still going | | strong and has two new attacks, a weak physical hit and a recover spell | | that heals more than 6000. Keep hacking away to take him down for real. | O=========================o==================o================== =============O Page 228

One particular | | new ability this boss has is to create little probes called Helixes. | | These things as the description says, will greatly increase Ultimecia's | | power if two of them appear.

Ultimecia will usually start off the fight with the Hell's | | Judgement ability which damages all your party members enough to bring | | them down to a single hit point without actually killing them. Don't | | pull any punches for this battle, empty your item inventory of things | | like Heroes, Holy Wars, Megalixirs and such, I mean you might as well, | | you sure as hell aren't going to need them after this.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 | It does seem like her array of different attacks is somewhat limited. | | What you need to watch out for is when you see something called Draw | | Apocalypse. This means you need to heal your characters because on the | | next turn you're going to be hit with the Apocalypse attack which deals | | over 6000 damage to everyone in your party, it's extremely nasty. There's | | no real super-easy win here, as usual the best thing to do is just rely | | on the strongest attacks in the game, these are of course the Renzokuken | | limit break and a fully boosted Eden Guardian Force. With these two | | you will easily be able to deal the damage needed to win this battle, | | the real issue is whether or not you can survive against the power-house | | attacks like Hell's Judgment and Apocalypse. I'd say the one real | | important factor is having Leviathan's Recover ability on Squall, | | couple extra Heroes in your inventory for him and basically you're set. | o---------------------------------------------------------------------------o O=============================================================== =============O | Plot Summary (000H0) | O=============================================================== =============O __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Disc 1 | (000H1) \----------------------------------------------------o "I'll be here...

The man who was knocked on the ground by his opponent from a fire spell wakes in in the hospital next to Dr. Kadowaki. The doctor tells him to take it easy next time, but it's hard to take it easy when it comes to his opponent, Seifer. The man in the bed is named Squall, and his teacher, Quistis, is just entering the room now. Right before she enters another girl is seen through the window bending over, "Squall... so we meet again" she says. Quistis enter the room saying "I knew it would be either you or Seifer, cmon, today is the field exam." As they leave the infirmary the shot zooms out and we see the large futuristic building the reside in, it's like a school, and it's called Balamb Garden. Quistis is the teacher at this school, the class including both Squall and Seifer is just beginning. She mentions that the field exam for SeeD candidates will be beginning this afternoon. She also takes the time to tell Seifer that you are absolutely NOT supposed to injure your partner during training. Seifer hits his desk in anger and the class ends. Quistis has something she needs to tell Squall, there is a prerequisite for the SeeD exam that all students must take part in before actually doing the exam, first they must go and visit the Fire Cavern. Squall had planned on doing it in the morning, but Seifer's little training session kind of got in the way. Squall and Quistis head off to the Fire Cavern, a large cave where Squall must navigate through and obtain a low level GF (Guardian Force) with the help of Quistis for battle purposes. The two of them find and defeat Ifrit, obtaining Ifrit as a Guardian Force for Squall. With that it's time to leave the Fire Cavern and return to Balamb Garden to get ready for the exam. Squall arrives at Balamb Garden and changes into the official uniform. Quistis announces to him who he will be taking the exam with, Page 232

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 his partner is Zell Dincht. Squall isn't exactly pleased with this decision, Zell is a loud and obnoxious fellow, he wants to switch partners. This cannot be done of course. She also announces that Seifer, the same Seifer who injured Squall in training this morning is going to be the squad leader, and that cannot be changed either. Just then Seifer walks in being trailed by two people, a man and a woman named Fujin and Raijin. Quistis tries to wish Seifer luck but he says he doesn't need luck. Headmaster Cid, the headmaster of Balamb Garden enters the scene. He announces that the test will occur on a real battlefield. Nine SeeD members will be accompanying them and if they fail, the SeeD members will get the job done, they always do. Best of luck to you. The group of them get into the car and head off toward the town of Balamb where they will be boarding the ship. Zell is too excited and he's dancing around, practice his punches in the car until Seifer tells him to stop it. Squall asks Quistis who the girl was in the infirmary this morning, but Quistis didn't seem to notice anybody. They arrive at the town of Balamb and from there transfer from the car to the ship. The ship races across the water toward the town of Dollet. While in the ship the group meets Xu, who is there to explain the current situation and the mission. Their client for the mission is Dollet Dukedom Parliament, Dollet has been under attack from the GArmy for the last 72 hours. They had to retreat from the inner city and are now reorganizing their troops up in the mountains. Their objective is to make a landing at the beach then eliminate the remaining G-Army in the city and liberate it as soon as possible. This is the specific job for the SeeD candidate group. All of the ships carrying the party and official SeeD members crash up onto the beach. Right when they arrive they're thrown into the middle of battle, the city is in chaos. The group makes their way through the city waiting for something to happen, holding position but nothing is Page 233

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 going on. Suddenly a number of Galbadian soldiers run by and head off in the direction of the communication tower. Seifer says that now that's their next destination. Zell complains that it's against orders, but Squall doesn't really care, maybe it would be a good chance to test out the new training. They arrive at the base of the communication tower. Seifer goes off on his own while a girl appears over top of the rocks nearby, she too is wearing a SeeD uniform. She claims to be a messenger from Squad A and is looking for the team leader, Seifer. He heads into the communications tower and they chase after him. Up top Wegde and Biggs are there tinkering with the controls, Wedge tells Biggs he saw a big monster shaped shadow up top, but Biggs won't listen. Just as the party reaches the top on the elevator Biggs announces that it is complete. The machinery sets in motion and some kind of large satellite dish opens up top and begins to emit a beam up into the sky. Biggs gets angry and attacks the party with Wedge but they are thrown aside by the large wind blast of another much larger monster. After dispatching this beast Selphie delivers the message to Seifer, all SeeD candidates are to withdraw to the shore by 1900 hours. That only gives them 30 minutes to get away. With that the party rides the elevator down and leaves the tower. As they leave Biggs musters the energy to get up on the tower above, he presses a button on a controller saying to get them all... when the group leaves the tower suddenly a huge giant robot spider jumps down from above and attacks! They manage to knock it out but only temporarily so they have to keep running to escape from it. They approach the beach with the giant robot spider closing in on them. Just when it looks like the robot will reach them before they are able to escape, Quistis pilots a huge run turret on top of one of the marine ships and blasts the robot spider with a barrage of gunfire leaving it as nothing more than scrap metal. The party escapes looking back Page 234

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 at the beach, realizing what a close call all of that really was. Back in the town of Balamb, Seifer heads off with Fujin and Raijin taking the car with him so the party has no choice but to walk. They split up at the entrance to Balamb Garden saying there's not much to do at this point except wait for the test results to come in. Headmaster Cid is speaking with Quistis and Xu. Cid says that the operation was a success, they didn't realize that it was the communication tower that Galbadia was after but they said that as long as the communication tower reamins active then Galbadia will take their forces out of Dollet. Seifer meets Squall in the nearby hall, he says that is not for that withdraw order then they would have been heroes. Quistis and Xu enter, Quistis tells Seifer he was only looking for a battle. Xu tells him that he'll never be a SeeD and calling himself a captain is a joke. When they leave, Headmaster Cid tells Seifer that he will be disciplined for his irresponsible behavior, however he is not without sympathy, he doesn't want them to just becomes machines following orders blindly. Right in the middle of his sentence a robed man appears and tells Cid he is needed in the office. Squall rides the elevator up to the second floor where he waits along with the rest of the candidates. A robed man enters and reads the names of Squall and Zell, saying for them to come with him. It turns out there were four people who passed the exam today, Squall, Zell, Selphie and some random guy. Cid tells them that this is a great accomplishment, now that they are members of SeeD they will be dispatched all over the world and will represent Garden wherever they go. They return to the second floor and are given a somewhat forced congratulations by Seifer and everyone else. Later that night Squall changes into his SeeD uniform and heads off for the big party. Squall kind of catches eyes with a girl in a white dress. She asks him to dance with her but Squall seems a bit uninterested. He says he can't dance but it's no use, she Page 235

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 drags him off anyway and they begin to dance in the middle of the floor... poorly. Squall really doesn't know what he's doing, but she gives him a hand with the whole thing. By the end, Squall seems to have figured it out and is dancing just fine even in his large combat boots. The girl seems like she sees something on the other side of the room, and kind of ditches Squall right in the middle of the floor. Next we see he has left the room and is now standing out on the balcony. Quistis comes out and joins him. She says that she wants to meet him later in the training center after curfew, head there and go to the secret place, this will be her last order... When they arrive at the secret area, Quistis tells Squall that as of midnight, she is no longer an instructor. She is just a member of SeeD, perhaps one who will end up working with him. They told her that she failed as an instructor and that she lacked leadership qualities. Squall doesn't want to hear about it and leaves he alone by herself to think that perhaps maybe they were right all along, maybe she does lack leadership qualities. As the two of them go to leave the Training Center, they hear a roar and someone yelling "Somebody help!" It's the girl from the beginning of the game who we saw in the infirmary, she calls out for "Squall and Quisty: to help her from the evil flying dragon monster. Once the monster is defeated two men in white uniforms drop down and tell the girl it isn't safe here, that they have to get out. As she leaves Quistis asks who that girl really was. On the way back Squall meets up with Zell who tells him that now since they became members of SeeD, they are entitled to get their own rooms across the hall from the old ones. In the morning Squall hears a message, it's the first mission, it seems they are being dispatched to Timber. Time to meet out at the front gate. Zell appears riding some kind of hover surf board, but they take it away from him. Headmaster CId explains the mission, they are to go to Timber. There they will be supporting a resistance faction. A member of the Page 236

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 faction will contact them at the Timber Station, when they say "The forests of Timber sure have changed," the party must respond "But the owls are still around," that is the password. It will be just the three of them as they agreed to do the mission for very little money, normally they would never accept such a mission but... well he doesn't want to get into that. They leave Garden and head for the station at Balamb. When the group boards the train Zell tells Squall a little about Timber, it used to be a country surrounded by deep forests but then eighteen years ago Galbadia invaded and they're still under Galbadian occupation. There are still a ton of resistance factions, both big and small. Suddenly all three of them begin to collpase, and fall unconscious... The next thing we see are three Galbadian soldiers out in the forest. They're running away from something, but it's not quite clear what's going on. Their names are Laguna, Kiros and Ward. They make it out of this forest and end up in Deling City. There Laguna says he wants to go and have a drink, but Kiros and Ward say he's only interested in the piano lady, this makes him angry. They arrive at the bar down in the basement of the hotel and sit down. The red-dressed piano lady named Julia comes down the stairs and begins to play the piano. Kiros and Ward tell Laguna to go for it. Laguna approaches Julia at the paino then suddenly his leg cramps up and he has to walk around on it first. He sits back down at the table, Kiros and Ward tell him good job on actually approaching her. They leave and Julia comes over to sit down. Laguna is so nervious he's shaking. Julia tells him she has a room here and they can talk privately there since everyone in the room seems to be listening in on them. Laguna gets upstairs to Julia's room. She tells him to sit down but he's a little too nervous to do that. Eventually after some wine he loosens up quite a bit and begins talking on and on. He says that he really doesn't like fighting but he gets to see the world. Someday he wants to quit Page 237

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 the army and become a journalist so he can write about all the places he's visited. After kind of falling asleep, he wakes up later and begins to ask about Julia. He asks her what he dreams and plans for the future are. She says she doesn't want to just play the piano, but sing as well. She says that she is terrible at coming up with lyrics, but thanks to Laguna perhaps now she'll be bale to write something. Suddenly there's a knock at the door, it's Kiros, he says they've got new orders and are to meet at the presidential residence on the double. With that the scene fades out to the party again. It seems that all of them had that same dream while unconscious, about Laguna, but given the circumstances they really don't have any way to figure out what the hell it was, so they choose to ignore it for now and focus on the mission. When they arrive in Timber Watts takes them to meet Zone, the leader of the Forest Owls. He wants to introduce everyone, they're already met Watts so I guess that just leaves the princess. Unfortunately it's her name time, Zone asks the party to go and wake her up. Squall arrives upstairs and learns that the girl is Rinoa, the girl he danced with at the party. She's so glad to see that SeeD is here, she had been sending requests forever and got so desperate that she spoke to the Headmaster directly. It was Seifer who introduced her to him. Now that he is here they can carry out all sorts of plans. Rinoa asks if Seifer is here, but Squall tells her that Seifer is not a SeeD. Back with the group again it's time to begin the meeting. It seems that Watts picked up some top secret Galbadian information. There's a VIP coming from Galbadia to Timber, his name is Vinzer Deling and he's the president of Galbadia. He'll be coming in a private train car, the plan is to use their train and a decoy car to make a high speed switch while the train is still on the tracks, so that no one will even notice. The meeting is over and it's time to begin the mission. Squall, Rinoa, Selphie and Zell run across the Page 238

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 tops of the train and enter the passcodes to undo the cars and make the switch. Everything goes according to plan, soon enough they're back in the first train car and ready to confront the president. They enter his train car and tell the president that as long as he doesn't resist he won't be harmed. He asks "What if I do resist?" Something weird is going on. The president says he is a body double, all they did was pass along a little false information and the resistance groups fell for it. Once the fake president has been defeated they meet back on the train again, they're angry that they fell for such a trick, but new information has come up. The reason why the president is here in Timber is because he's heading for the TV station, they don't know why, it's just as easy to broadcast from Galbadia. Perhaps the communication tower in Dollet has something to do with this. They assume that since the communication tower is the only tower that actually broadcasts radio waves rather than HD cable, perhaps the president wants to broadcast something to regions even without cable. There must be something they want to say to the whole world. Rinoa, Watts and Zone start having a little meeting about their next plan. Squall is getting impatient and asks to see the contract they have with the Garden. The contract says: "To the Forest Owls, This SeeD deployment contract will last until Timber achieves independence. Please make good use of each SeeD member. I wish you the best with your objective. Please understand this contract is an exception, and no replacement of any SeeD members can be made. Balamb Garden Headmaster Cid Kramer." Seplhie complains that the contract is really vague. They leave the train and make their way toward the TV Station however they find out the president is already there and storming the place would mean certain death because of his guards. Just as they are talking suddenly the TV above them tunes in. A man walks up to the pedestal, saying this is not a recording, this is the first live broadcast that has been Page 239

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 possible in the last 17 years. He introduces the lifelong president of Galbadia, Vinzer Deling. Deling says that they the people have the power to end all wars, however there are conflicts between Galbadia and other nations that must come to an end. He says now he would like to introduce his new ambassador, the Sorceress. Just as he says this there is a crash and Seifer breaks in, killing off some Galbadian guards he grabs the president and takes him hostage. Quistis appears as well and says on the air that if the Timber Team is watching to get over here immediately, they have permission. Squall and the group run up toward the TV Station Deling is being held hostage, still, it turns out that Seifer was able to escape. Zell says that they're going to bring that idiot Seifer right back to Garden after this, but he should have kept his mouth shut. Deling says that now since he knows they're from Garden, if anything happens to him Garden will be crushed. Seifer drags the president into the back room where a Sorceress appears in the room. She calls Seifer a little boy who is unable to cope with the situation and needs help to resolve it. Seifer lets go of the president and follows the Sorceress into her teleportation portal. With that Seifer is gone and they head back to town. An old woman who is a member of another resistance group hides them out in her house. Rinoa asks to be brought to a safe place. When she asks Squall if he thinks Seifer is okay, Squall says there's a good chance he's dead. The president joined forces with the Sorceress and Seifer attacked the president so... who knows. They need to decide where to go, according to the rulebook in the event one cannot return to the assigned Garden they are to report to the nearest GArden, which in this case happens to be Galbadia Garden. They meet with Zone near the train who says the tickets are sold out, but lucky for them he has everyone's ticket right there with him. He's got one for Rinoa, three for the SeeD members and one for himself. He looks over at Quistis and Page 240

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 offers it to her. She thanks him and all the party members board the train for the East Academy Station. When they disembark and are heading through the forest toward Galbadia Garden, suddenly three of them fall unconscious again. Laguna, Kiros and Ward have been sent to patrol some kind of facility where all sorts of rocks and stuff seem to be moving about for processing or who knows what. Right when they arrive they're attacked by a whole bunch of soldiers, Laguna thought this was just going to be a patrol mission. They make their way through the facility but really get beaten down by some soldiers near the end. They find themselves on the edge of the cliff, thinking they can jump down into the ocean to safety. Ward can't say anything, the final attack from the enemy damaged him enough, and he lost his voice. Laguna helps Kiros and Ward up then throws them over the edge of the cliff just before jumping himself. The party wakes up in the forest again, still with no idea what these dreams mean. They head toward Galbadia Garden. When they arrive at the Garden Quistis goes off by herself, saying she's been here several times before and knows the Headmaster pretty well. When the party gets upstairs Quistis said they understood the situation and Balamb Garden is safe. They called it an independent action and Balamb Garden is not being held responsible. She says the trial is over and the sentence has been carried out, Seifer was executed. Rinoa kneels down. She says she really liked him, he was always so full of confidence. Squall gets angry, all of the peopel talking about Seifer in the past tense, he never wants that to be him. He leaves the room and finds Fujin and Raijin outside. They say they have brought new orders and given them to the Headmaster here. When Fujin asks about Seifer Squall tells her that he was tried and executed in Galbadia. Raijin doesn't believe it and they go off to Galbadia to look for him. Squall leaves the Garden and the whole group meets up with Headmaster Martine. He Page 241

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 says they have new orders from Headmaster Cid, and even they too have been considering the same thing. He says they all know about the Sorceress being appointed ambassador of peace talks, but there will be no peace talks, only threats. Galbadia is planning to use fear to negotiate in favour of itself. Martine hands the orders to Squall. Squall says that they must execute the plan by means of "a sniper" but they have no one with that skill. Martine knows this and calls for Irvine Kinneas. He will be their sharpshooter. The orders call for the assassination of the Sorceress. If the sniper misses then they are to attack head on. They are to head to Deling City, the capital of Galbadia and meet up with General Caraway, so that's what they do. They arrive in Deling City, the place where they first saw Laguna, Kiros and Ward. When they get to Caraway's mansion the soldier in front has been instructed not to let them in until their skills have been tested. yesterday a student went off to the Tomb of the Unknown King and never returned. They are to go and find a trace of this student along with his ID number. The party heads off to find the tomb. When they arrive two people are running quickly out of the tomb, they seem extremely scared of something. Inside the party finds Sacred, a lare minotaur who attacks them but runs off scared when defeated. As they continue through the tomb, in the central structure they find Sacred once again. He says things will be different this time and summons his pint sized elder brother to fight with him. Despite the small stature, the elder brother is by far the superior fighter but in the end they both succumb and offer their powers as a Guardian Force. The spirit of the unknown king is allowed to escape and head off for the afterlife. Back in Deling City once again now with the student's recovered ID number they speak to the guard who agrees they have passed and allows them through to meet with General Caraway. As they are all waiting in the room Rinoa says it's so Page 242

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 rude of him to make them wait, he does this all the time. This is Rinoa's house and General Caraway is Rinoa's father however she hasn't called him that in quite a long time. He's a top military officer and she's part of an antigovernment faction, it's certainly a conflict of interest. Caraway gets ready to explain the situation. He says that tonight there is going to be a ceremony as kind of a commemoration for Sorceress Edea. It is to be held at the presidential residence. The party will split up into two teams, the gateway team will enter the gate and standby while the sniper team will gather near the presidential residence. There is a clock tower with a sniper rifle in it that will rise up at 20:00. The parade will circle around the city and everntually move toward the gate, that is where the gateway team will come into play. The clock raises up and there's a clear shot from there... Squall will be the leader of the operation, he and Irvine will compose the Sniper Team. Quistis, Zell and Selphie will make up the gateway team with Quistis being the leader. They drop off the gateway team and sniper team in their positions. Suddenly Quistis thinks about something, when Rinoa came into the mansion suggesting they try to find some use for the "Odine Bangle" which supposedly suppresses the Sorceresses powers, Qusitis got a little angry. She feels bad about that and wants to go apologize, they've got time until 20:00. Just before they arrive at the mansion, Caraway is speaking to Rinoa. He says she'll be safe here in this room and walks away. There's a noise and Rinoa realizes he's going to lock her in the room. She runs out of the room quickly just before Quists' party runs in and they are the ones who get locked inside. Quistis is especially worried because it probably means Rinoa is going to go see the Sorceress. Her suspicions turn out to be real, Rinoa climbs up the side of a building to visit the Sorceress. She says she is the daughter of General Caraway and she thought she'd come pay respects, because of her father and everything. She even brought a gift. Page 243

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 As she approaches the Sorceress she is thrown out of the way by some kind of magical energy blast. The Sorceress doesn't even speak a word. She appears on the balcony with Rinoa behind her in some kind of trance statue. Irvine looks up and tells Squall that girl looks kind of familiar, he instantly recognizes it as being Rinoa up there. The Sorceress begins to speak, asking the people how they can accept her, what happened to the cold and evil Sorceress from their fantasies who slaughtered countless men? President Deling asks if she is all right, suddenly she stabs her hand into his chest and throws him aside. Once here sppech is over she walks away and says they will end the ceremony with a sacrifice. Using her Sorceress powers she brings two stone lizards to life which promptly run through the crowd and jump up onto the roof where President Deling and Rinoa are. Irvine wants to go up and help her but Squall won't go until the gate opens and the parade starts. Back in Caraway's mansion the group is still locked inside. They need to find a way out. Quistis find a win glass and places it into the hands of the statue which opens up a secret path out of the room leading down into the sewer. When they get down there they can hear the parade starting. Squall and Irvine are ready to move into place, then run through the open gate and climb the same crates that Rinoa climbed to get up to the Sorceress. They save Rinoa from the two lizards and then descend through the trap door to prepare for the sniping. Irvine takes the sniper rifle and goes off to sit by himself. Squall tells Rinoa that Seifer was on the float with the Sorceress, he's still alive. If he has to end up attacking the Sorceress directly, is he going to have to go through Seifer? Squall walks over to Irvine to see what he's doing, he's shaking. Irvine looks up at Squall and says "I can't do it." Back in the sewer once again, the gateway team is still trying to get back to the gateway. They navigate through the sewers and make it up to the gateway Page 244

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 button just in time. Quistis throws the switch and the gate crashes down, trapping Edea's float inside. On the clock tower Irvine is still unwilling to shoot. Squall tells him to calm down, he doesn't care if he misses, just shoot. Think of it as a signal for them to make their move. Just a signal, Irvine thinks... he gets up and turns around, aiming his rifle at the Sorceress, he fires. The Sorceress erects some kind of barrier and the bullet just stops dead. Squall tells Irvine not to worry, his aim was perfect. He jumps down and crashes his way through the gate toward the Sorceress. Squall confronts and defeats Seifer, then confronts the Sorceress with the help of Rinoa and Irvine. The battle wages between the two of them with no clear winner or loser, that is until Edea has had enough of the battle and summons forth some floating icicles. There's horizontal frozen spikes are then hurled past Rinoa directly into Squall's chest. After being impaled through the right side of his body, Squall falls back and drops off the side of the float with Rinoa watching in horror from above, and such is the end of disc one. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Disc 2 | (000H2) \----------------------------------------------------o The beginning fo disc two starts off with Laguna again. Elle, a little girl, is speaking to Laguna in a house. She says that someone is here to visit him, wearing funny clothes. He's at the pub right now talking to Raine. They leave the house and head for the pub. When Laguna walks in, Kiros steps into view. Laguna asks how long it's been since they plummeted off that cliff after escaping. Laguna was bedridden for six months, but Raine nursed him back to health. Laguna asks what happened to Ward, turns out he got a job. He's working hard as a janitor down at the D-District prison. He never got his voice back. Julia started up a signing career, the first song she Page 245

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 released was called "Eyes on Me," about being in love or something like that. She also got married to some army guy... General Caraway. Raine read in a magazine that her true love went off to war and never came back. "So what," Laguna says. As long as she's happy. They leave the pub, Kiros asks Laguna exactly what it is he does here. Laguna explains that all the men in the town have gone off to war, all that are left are old people, children, women, dogs and Chocobos. The town has done a lot for him and he wants to repay the favour by helping drive out all the monsters that have made their way into town. On their way back from the patrol, Kiros tells Laguna that he had a chat with the editor for Timber Maniacs who said said he would be interested in an article on world travel, if Laguna was still interested in journalism. Laguna says that sounds great. They return to the pub where they find Raine speak to Ellone. Ellone asks Raine if one day maybe she will marry Laguna. Raine says Laguna wouldn't be happy in a place like this, he's the kind of person who wants to travel and see the world. Laguna delivers his report to Raine after pretending he wasn't listening in on their conversation. Raine tells him that he looks tired and to go get some rest so Laguna returns to his room and gets ready to sleep, hoping he will awake in the same bed again... Zell wakes up from the dream world, Quistis, Rinoa and Selphie are there too, in some kind of metal room. They ask if it was the dream world again, and how Laguna is doing. Zell says he doesn't know, after the Centra incident and the cliff, they went their separate ways and all he saw was Ward working in some kind of jail, he's bored out of his mind and only wishes he could be fighting alongside Laguna. As for them, they're stuck in the prison, but Zell says it looks familiar. This is the prison where Ward works! Regardless, they're here because they attacked the Sorceress, they'll almost surely be sentenced to death. The question now is, what happened to Squall, and where the hell is Irvine? The scene changes, Squall wakes up in a completely Page 246

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 different room. He thinks to himself, he challenged Edea and was wounded, but there's no wound. And Seifer... what's going on? Just as he says this some kind of mobile elevator system raises his cell up toward the top of the structure. The scene changes again, back to the party members. Three officers enter their cell and start beating up on Zell for no apparent reason. They ask if a Rinoa is with them, she tells them who she is and they take her away. Meanwhile Seifer has entered Squall's cell. He calls Squall pitiful and beckons for two Moombas (small little red furred creatures) to come in and take him away. They've got him chained up on the wall. Seifer asks him a question, he asks what SeeD is, Edea demands to know. Squall says they're Garden's elite mercenary force, combat specialists, doesn't Seifer already know that? Seifer says there must be some kind of secret you're given when you become a SeeD. Squall tells him there's nothing like that and even if there was, he wouldn't say. It doesn't seem to bother Seifer either way, he signals the guard to start administering an electric shock to Squall. He then says it doesn't matter if he won't talk, the instructor, that girl or the chicken-wuss Zell, he wouldn't last three seconds. A guard comes into the room and tells Seifer the missles targeted at Garden are ready to launch. Seifer says that Balamb Garden is to be destroyed on charges of training SeeDs to oppose the Sorceress. Seifer leaves and the interrogation continues. Back with the other party again they are trying to figure out a way to escape. Zell realizes that while Selphie and Quistis had their weapons confiscated, Zell's weapons are his fists, he can still do some serious damage. Not to mention the fact that he might at least know the place a little bit since he saw it as Ward. Zell calls the guard into the room while Selphie and Quistis lay on the ground pretending to be unconscious. He tells the guard that a snake must have bitten them and while the guard is distracted, Page 247

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Zell gives him a nice punch to the gut and manages to escape. He goes and retrieves the weapons, when he comes back and returns them a guard walks in with Biggs and Wedge, the two soldiers from the communication tower in Dollet who were demoted after the incident. Once again they are pummeled into the ground. The group runs up to the thirteenth floor where they find Squall and rescue him. The moomba they are with keeps yelling "Laguna! Laguna!" for whatever reason. Since there doesn't seem to be much to do up here they have to get down lower I guess, it's a long way down though. Zell remembers that Ward operated the big crane to get from floor to floor so he heads upstairs and lets Squall, Quistis and Selphie get on the elevator while he controls it. The door at the bottom just leads to a huge wall of sand... then suddenly gunfire is heard. They're worried about Zell so they have to get back up there. The warden is about to shoot and kill Zell when Squall jumps in to save his life at the last second. Qustis and Selphie appears as well but they're overwhelmed by gunfire and at a loss for what to do. That's when Irvine and Rinoa appear. Rinoa says her father pulled some strings to get here out of jail, all the while Irvine was here to get only her out of jail... an interesting situation. The guards are back though, Irvine tells Squall to get everyone to the top, that's where the exit is, trust me, he says. Squall's party makes it up to the top where Irvine chimes in through radio communication. They tell Squall to operate the arm, Zell pushes the button and the crane rises up bringing the other party to the top to meet with them. Squall and the others begin to cross the bridge, as they do they realize what an enormous place it really is. They're on one of three huge walkways leading between three prison towers out in the middle of the desert. The two traveling with Squall get across fine but just as he's about to make it to the end the path begins to slide apart and disappear. He finds himself hanging Page 248

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 onto the side as the enormous prison uses its giant drill shaped bottom to dig down into the sand, making the thirteenth floor more like the ground level. Squall manages to survive this dangerous event and the party makes it out okay. Rinoa has information that the Sorceress wants to launch missiles at Garden, both Balamb Garden and Trabia Garden. Just as he says this a huge set of missiles fires from the nearby missile base. Irvine mentions that they were going to be aiming for Trabia first, the Garden that Selphie went to and recently transferred from. Squall chooses a party to go to Balamb and warn everyone while Selphie and two others head for the Missile Base. Selphie plans to use the Galbadian army vehicle they took to get into the base, but once they're in there, who knows. The two groups now part ways. It seems like the best way to get back to Balamb Garden is to steal a train, so that's exactly what Squall does. Meanwhile Selphie's party reaches the Missile Base. The security guard lets them through the gate. When they get inside the group decides to act casual and just walk by the guards since they are still dressed as Galbadian Solsiders. One guard stops them to compliment them on walking single file, how very polite. What an odd man. Anyway they keep moving through the base until they find a soldier who says it's time for the inspection, but today is the real deal so there's no way they have time for it. They tell Selphie and the ground to go and tell the people at the missile launcher, that they will come by later, and to just go ahead. The other crew is a bit too busy as well, so when returning to the first two men they just ask Selphie if she will take care of it for them. They go into the room and begin pounding on various buttons, soon enough the power goes up. Back downstairs the group is asked to help move a launcher and then check everything out on the control panel. The group uses the control panel to set the error ratio of the missile firing to maximum and then run upstairs to finally cause a ruckus. After defeating some soldiers they find Page 249

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 the missile controls and the self-destruct mechanism for the base. They set the timer and begin to run like mad. As they leave, a lone soldier activates the missles. Outside in the parking lot the turrets take aim and fire... the group falls to their knees, there was nothing they could have done. When they reach the gate there's an enormous huge metallic blue machine monster controlled by Galbadian Soldiers there waiting for them. They pummel the machine into submission and quickly realize it is blocking the gate, there is no escape back where they came from and no escape in front of them. The auto-destruct timer is still set and there's nothing they can do. It seems like this is the end, they wonder if perhaps Squall knew this would happen and that's why he chose them, but no, they choose to believe that he had confidence in their abilities and that they are just victims of an unfortunate circumstance. Explosions can be heard in the background and as the base begins to detonate, Selphie and her two companions run just offscreen when the camera cuts to a birds-eye view of the entire base and area for about a kilometre around just totally blows. We see Squall's party next, back at Balamb Garden which is still standing. Squall says it looks like they did it, however missiles could still be on their way. They still need to report to the Headmaster and with that they run into the Garden. Everyone is running around like crazy, the weird robed Garden security people are moving around from place to place as well. One robed man approaches the party yelling "Seize him! Kill him if you have to!" He asks Squall's party "You three, which side are you on? Do you side with Cid or swear allegiance to Garden Master NORG?" Squall kind of agrees to side with this NORG, whoever he is, to avoid pissing this guy off for now. The robed man says that some of Cid's followers are protecting him, go find Cid and kill the followers if need be. The party finds Raijin and Fujin in the front hall who explain that everyone's running around like crazy either siding Page 250

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 with Cid or this Garden Master, whoever it is. Squall says he needs to find Headmaster Cid immediately, Galbadian missiles might be heading this way. Raijin and Fujin agree to go tell everyone about the missiles before escaping. When asked who they were "siding with," Raijin and Fujin respond that they still side with Seifer, always have an always will. Once they're gone Squall kind of says under his breath that Seifer has sided with the Sorceress, he wonders if they are okay with that. For now though, it is irrelevant because they still need to find the Headmaster. First the group heads foe cafeteria where a number of SeeDs are holding up, trying to give the impression that Cid is there. One of them says they're doing the same thing in other areas as well, it was all Xu's idea, she took charge when this whole mess began. On the second floor the party finds Xu, she quickly asks them "Whse side are you on!?" Squall says neither, he has urgent news for the Heamster. Galbadian missiles may be headed this way! Xu tells him to come see the Heamaster who is up in his office, they made it look like he's hiding but that's where he has been all along. Headmaster says the intercom is down to they can't announce the evacuation, he wants Squall's party to go help Xu, Fujin and Raijin with the evacuation and then get out themselves. Cid will stay here till the end, he has a plan anyway, perhaps a way to save Garden. Squall says he wants to do more, he wants to go and take care of whatever plan it is that Cid has. Cid explains that long ago this building was used as a shelter before it was remodeled into Garden. The key Cid gives them will allow them to access the MD level in the elevator, below that he heard there was some kind of control system that might perhaps help them against the missiles. The party makes their way down into the lower levels of the Garden, the much less attractive industrial greasy, oily areas. When they reach the bottom they find the controls, but what to do with them is a mystery. Squall begins messing around when suddenly the platform they are Page 251

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 standing on rises up through Cid's office. The entire huge Balamb Garden seems to be transforming! That's when Squall sees the missiles coming out of the corner of his eye, the missiles miss Garden barely as it flies up out of its hole in the ground and begins moving amidst a cloud of smoke. Back on the bridge Cid tells Squall and his party to go check on everyone. They head out to the balcony to see what's going on, they're definitely flying! Back inside again Xu calls them and tells them to get back to the bridge immediately. The controls aren't responding and if they don't do something quick they're going to crash into the town of Balamb. Squall saves the day and manages to turn the garden and avoid the town, the Garden kind of drifts and lands in the sea. Cid decides it would be best to just drift for awhile while they try to figure out how all the controls work. After a rest, Squall is summoned to go down tothe Master's Room where the Garden Master wishes to speak with him, down in the basement. Headmaster Cid is down there, arguing. We can't see Garden Master but we can hear Cid's words. He says he wishes he could go back a few years and tell himself that the Garden Master is nothing but a money-grubbing son of a bitch, then he never would have built this place. Cid tells the party to come by his office later and give their report on the Sorceress, then he goes back up the elevator. One of the robed men comes and says the Garden Master is ready to see them. The Garden Master is a big ugly slug man who makes crazy noises and yells when he talks, the closest comparison would be Jabba the Hut. Garden Master, or NORG, demands that the party give their report on the Sorceress. Squall explains that they failed to assassinate the Sorceress. They received confirmation of Headmaster Cid's orders at Galbadia Garden. NORG cries out, telling them they were fooled. It was NORG who sent the order to assassinate the Sorceress to his subordinate Martine, master of the Galbadia Garden, however as a last resort he used Squall's party to carry out the assassination Page 252

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 to place the blame on NORG. NORG says that the need to do something to calm the Sorceress' anger, they have to hand over those responsible for the assassination attempt to the Sorceress to prove their loyalty. Offer the SeeD's heads on a platter to prove their loyalty. NORG says that idiot Cid has forgotten it was he who put up the money to build the Garden, he will give Cid's head to the Sorceress on a platter as well. Squall yealls at NORG, saying this Garden doesn't belong to him. NORG asks him then who it does belong to? Not that pathetic married couple Cid and Edea. Cid is indeed married to the Sorceress they are trying to assassinate. NORG says he understands now, they're trying to take Garden away from him. All Cid's followers must die! NORG attacks Squall's party but they manage to get the best of him in battle. They return upstairs and find Cid in the infirmary. The doctor says they'll have to wait a minute to see him. He calls out and says it's okay, he's done crying now. Squall has a few questions for the headmaster. First he asks what the true purpose of SeeD is. Cid says that SeeD is Garden's elite mercenary force, Garden will train them and they will defeat the Sorceress. The missions around the world are only training for the final battle against the Sorceress. Now that the Sorceress has become a threat, their true mission has begun. Squall next asks about Sorceress Edea, he asks if it's ture she's really Cid's wife. He says her knew she was a Sorceress since childhood and married her knowing that, they were very happy together. One day Edea thought they should build Garden and train the SeeDs, Cid told her he was concerned that one day the SeeDs might have to fight her, she laughed and said that would never happen. Squall next asks about Master NORG. Cid says that NORG is of the Shumi Tribe, a black sheep one might say. He ran into NORG while trying to find the money to build Garden and NORG was interested. When it was built they still needed a lot of money to keep it going so they began to dispatch SeeDs all around the world as a Page 253

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 means of keeping Garden alive. From then an enormous amount of money starting flowing into the Garden, the ideals of SeeD changed and NORG got greedy. Cid says that in the end however it was his fault for giving up control. Lastly Squall asks the headmaster what they are to do next. They leave the infirmary. In the front hall Xu comes running down the stairs and asks if Squall has seen the headmaster. He tells her she can find him at the infirmary and asks what is so urgent. Xu explains that another ship can be seen in the distance and is headed this way. Who knows what kind of attack force could be on that ship. Squall goes to the second floor balcony to check it out, the ship is a Galbadian ship. Three people in white suit's come out and ask for Headmaster Cid. They say this is Edea's ship and they are SeeDs, Sorceress Edea's SeeDs. The people who say they are unarmed, then jump aboard the ship. They say they must speak to Headmaster Cid urgently, that's when a voice is heard saying "I'm right here." He comes out onto the balcony to speak with the White WeeDs. They say they have come for Ellone, it is too dangerous for her to remain here now. Cid agrees with them. Squall thinks to himself "Ellone? The girl from Winhill?" Referring to the little girl who lived with Raine and Laguna in the most recent dream. Headmaster Cid asks Squall to go and find her, she's somewhere in the Garden. Squall manages to find her in the library, it's the same girl from the beginning of the game in the infirmary and the same girl he rescued from Granaldo in the training center. He asks if she knows Laguna and she says she does. He then demands to know exactly what it is they're experiencing. She says it's hard to explain, it's about the past, they are viewing the past. She says that many say you can't change the past, but perhaps it's still worth a try. Squall says that he's got enough problems as it is.... he doesn't want other people counting on him. She walks over to Squall and mutters "You're my only hope" as Xu accompanies her to the Page 254

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 White SeeD ship. Later that night Squall has some kind of flashback or dream of himself, standing out in the rain, saying "I'm waiting for you sis..., but I'll be ok. I'll be ok without you sis..." and the scene fades away. In the morning Cid gets on the loudspeaker, explaining that the system is back up and running. Just as he says this he yells "WHOA" and the scene cuts to that of a man fishing from the end of a steel beam. He throws his line in the water hoping for a big one... suddenly there's a huge crash as Balamb Garden smashes through a nearby pillar. The fisherman runs for his life. Cid yells over the loudspeaker for Squall to come to the bridge immediately. When they arrive he explains his new orders. They have landed at Fishermans Horizons. They are to go out and find the mayor to explain that they come in peace and apologize for the damage. When they leave the Garden a man steps up to them. He says that under no circumstances will they tolerate armed combat in the city, as long as they understand that then they are welcome to enter. The man also says not to worry about the damage, they love fixing things anyway. Squall heads off to find the mayor. The first things the mayor asks is when they are leaving. He says they are a militaristic group that solves problems with violence, this does not coincide with their ways. He says that their technicians will assist with whatever they need, if Squall needs to consult Cid before letting people into Garden then he should go and do just that. As they are leaving the house someone yells that the Galbadian soldiers are here. Flo, Mayor Dobe's wife appears saying it's all their fault the Galbadian Soldiers are here. Dobe says they can't rely on Squall's party, all they will do is fight. He's going to go talk with them. When Squall's party arrives he finds the mayor speaking with a Galbadian soldier. He tells the soldier he's never heard of a girl named Ellone, there's no one here by that name. The soldier says it really doesn't matter, they're going to torch the Page 255

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 city anyway, Edea's orders. Squall jumps in the help the mayor and defeats the soldiers. Then suddenly the huge machine from the Missile Base that Selphie's party fought appears and attacks Squall's party, despite being rather broken down. After they defeat it, the machine moves back and falls into the water... from there Selphie and the two people who were with her climb up from the wreckage and find Squall standing there. The six party members are reunited once again. As they head back to Balamb Garden, Irvine tells Squall that Selphie is feeling a little down right now, he thought Squall should know. They both leave Fishermans Horizon for Garden again. When they arrive at thee Quad they find Selphie feeling a little depressed, the stage has been completely destroyed and she was hoping to see some bands play on it. Squall gets called away by Headmaster Cid and Irvine stays to cheer her up. He says that maybe they can get some of the technicians from FIshermans Horizon to fix the stage. Up on the bridge meanwhile, Squall is telling Heamaster Cid that the Galbadian soldiers were looking for Ellone. Squall thinks to himself that Ellone has the ability to make people see the past, perhaps Edea is afer this ability as well. Cid says that it is likely the Sorceress will not stop her hunt for Ellone, she will keeping looking for her, burning everything in her path. Cid gets on the loudspeaker and makes an announcement. Once Garden leaves Fishermans Horizon they are going on a journey. It is a journey to defeat the Sorceress and garden will be used as a mobile base. The journey will involve many battles and a qualified leader is needed for this, therefore he is appointing Squall as the new leader. Back at the Quad once again Irvine is helping set everything up. Selphie wants to hold a concert and the newly rebuilt stage, not just for them, but for Squall as well to congratulate him on his recent promotion. Selphie explains that they will be the ones playing the instruments (excluding Rinoa, Page 256

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 she will have a more important job.) The person she took over the committee from had four musical scores but everything got messed up when Balamb Garden crashed so now there's eight musical scores. They try to put together the correct four as best they can. Selphie tells Rinoa it will be her job to get Squall here. Later that night she brings him to the concert. She talks to him there, saying it would be nice if may he would talk a little more, or rely on them a little more, he's so closed all the time. He thinks to himself that it's the way he prefers to be, and doesn't really want to talk anymore. The next morning he gets called up to the bridge. Quistis, Nida and Xu are there. Nida will be responsible for piloting the Garden. He asks Squall to give a speech to the entire Garden but he says "Forget it... cut the mic." When the party reaches Balamb they find it is closed off to everyone while some kind of investigation goes on. They need to get inside so Squall tells the guard it's too bad they won't let him in, he's got some information on Ellone. The guard tells him if he knows anything at all, he must tell the commander who is staying at the hotel, he will be rewarded, and allows the party to enter the town. First off they go to visit Zell's mother, she says that she saw a woman in the Galbadian army, gray hair and an eye-patch, it must be Fujin. The group finds out from the soldiers in front of the hotel that the captain is out on patrol and they'll need to find him. After following a dog to the train station they catch a glimpse of Raijin running away. They find him once again, back at the hotel. He says that Seifer told him to give them a whoopin' if he ever saw them, so he attacks the party. After being defeated he runs into the hotel and attacks wtih Fujin this time. When the battle is over Squall asks if they're working with the Sorceress... once again they say they're just following Seifer, they're his posse, and with that the two of them are gone. Back in Balamb Garden once again Selphie comes up to the bridge and makes a request to go and visit her old Page 257

Garden, Trabia.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01

When they arrive it looks pretty bad. The garden was obviously hit by those missiles. The party climbs over the fence and Selphie runs off by herself. The party gathers on the basketball court while they wait for Selphie to go off and deal with everything she needs to do. Rinoa asks Squall if maybe perhaps there's a way to beat the Sorceress without having to fight, without having to resort to bloodshed. Squall says that she was part of a resistance faction that took action and drew their weapons... what happened to her? She explains that she's feeling fear now, she doesn't want to lose anybody. Irvine approaches her saying he understands how she feels... a long time ago he was in an orphanage. When he was four years old he used to play with a girl named Selphie. Selphie and Quistis suddenly seem to recall such a place. Irvine tells them he knew since they first met, but never said anything since they seemed to have forgotten. Spunky little Selphie, bossy little Quisty and... Zell. Then of course there was the other little boy. One night they set off fireworks near the beach and got in a lot of trouble, everyone seems to remember that. Of course, there was also Seifer. In fact, except for Rinoa, they were all there. Squall is beginning to remember. He says that he was always waiting for 'Sis' to come back. Sister was Ellone, she was slightly older than everyone but she took care of them. The question is, why has everyone forgotten? Irvine says it was because of the Guardian Forces, when you junction them, they become part of your brain, in the area where memories are stored, it's the price they pay for utilizing their power. He hadn't junctioned a GF until recently so it's why he remembers the most. Quistis asks if anyone remembers Matron... her name was Edea Kramer, she and Sorceress Edea are one and the same. Now matter what they do, they cannot back down now, they have to fight their Matron inevitably at some point. Perhaps it's time to go and visit the orphanage, Squall agrees it is. Page 258

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 They arrive at the orphanage, it's definitely the right place, but something odd is going on. Squall can feel another presance nearby... something huge. Sure enough, Galbadia Garden is hovering in the forest right behind the,. The party quickly gets back into Balamb Garden and runs to the bridge. The Sorceress is likely with them, Squall says the battle is inevitable. Squall grabs his party and heads for the Quad where he finds Zell giving orders to all the other personnel there. Zell takes Squall aside for a moment and asks him a question, it's about his ring. Zell wants to borrow Squall's ring, just for awhile, he won't lose it. Squall doesn't have a clue why he would want such a thing, but he gives it to Zell nonetheless. Zell says he's got this place covered, Squall needs to report back to the bridge. Seifer is standing front and centre on the approaching Galbadia Garden. He gives the order and a whole group of Galbadian soldiers on motorcycles jump from Galbadia Garden over to Balamb Garden. Zell runs back into the Quad to try and stop the attack. On the way Zell stops and gives the ring to Rinoa, saying he got it from Squall just like she wanted, and he'll make her one just like it toon. Suddenly Galbadia Garden brushes by and knocks a hunk of the Quad right off. Zell is able to jump to safety but Rinoa falls, barely grabbing onto a rock on her way down. Squall tells Zell to go and find any way he can to save her, meanwhile he has to go up to the classroom himself and save the junior classmen. After doing this Squall is called to the bridge to see Dr. Kadowaki. She tells him that eventually they're just going to have to board the Galbadian Garden. Zell comes running in saying they've got the Quad barricaded, there's no way to reach Rinoa, Squall's got to go do something. Everyone else will attack while he saves Rinoa and then gets over to their Garden. Squall gets on the loudspeaker and announces their plan, saying it's time for the final battle, they are attacking Galbadia Garden. Nida pushes the Garden to smash into Galbadia Garden, with that Zell, Page 259

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Selphie, Irvine and Quistis are able to get on board. Squall heads off in search of Rinoa. When he reaches the second floor there's a person looking for someone who is lost somewhere. Squall finds a little boy crying and just as he goes to help him a Galbadian Soldier bursts in and knocks him against the wall. Squall presses the emergency exit button and they both drop out the door. Using the machine the soldier had, they fly high above all the chaos and punch each other again and again until eventually the Galbadian Soldier falls. Squall pilots the flying machine past Rinoa, picks her up and drops her on the ground. She thanks him, saying she couldn't afford to die, she had something of his, the ring Zell gave her. The ring engraved with a lion, Squall says the lion's name is Griever, lions are strong and proud animals. Once inside Galbadia Garden the party finds Fujin & Raijin, but they don't want to fight. They tell Squall to go and take care of Seifer himself, they just want the old Seifer back. Squall's party finally reaches the Sorceress' chamber upstairs and battles Seifer to get past him and reach her. When Seifer has been defeated she calls him worthless and descends through the ground to the auditorium below. They arrive at the auditorium where Rinoa runs into the room along with them. Edea appears and says now it is time for the legendary battle between the Sorceress and the SeeDs who are destined to fight her. Squall and his group battle the Sorceress and a weakened Seifer until the two of them have been defeated. A large flash of light is seen after the battle, amidst all the white we can see Rinoa walking like a zombie. When everything clears, Edea is there. She says they have all grown so much, while she has waited for this day she has also feared this day. And where is Ellone? Has she been protected? Just as Edea speaks, Quistis calls out to Squall, there is something serious wrong with Rinoa... and so ends the second disc. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII Page 260

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Disc 3 | (000H3) \----------------------------------------------------o Squall wakes up in his bed in Balamb Garden, unaware of what really happened. He goes to visit the infirmary, Rinoa is there, in some kind of coma. An announcement comes over the loudspeaker, Squall is to return to Edea's house at once, the Sorceress, Edea, she is at the orphanage. When they arrive they meet Cid. He says that he fled before the battle, their victory would mean the loss of his wife, and their defeat would mean the loss of them, he couldn't bear to face either outcome. He brings them to see Edea, their old Matron. She apologizes for everything, saying that the whole time she was possessed by Sorceress Ultimecia. She is a Sorceress from the future, many generations ahead of our time and her primary goal is to find Ellone. She is afer Ellone's power. Ultimecia has yet to achieve her goal, she may once again use Edea's body to try and carry out her plans, if this happens they will have to defeat Edea. She asks if any of them have heard of Sorceress Adel, the ruler of Esthar during the Sorceress War. Edea believes that Sorceress Adel is still alive and that Ultimaecia released her body in order to utilize Adel's powers. Afer Edea has explained all of this, Squall asks her if she knows what happened to Rinoa. Edea says she's sorry but there's nothing she can do. Squall returns to visit Rinoa in the infirmary. Flashback to Laguna, Kiros and Ward. Laguna seems a little hesitant to do something, but recognizes that they need the money. He seems to have gotten a part in a movie where he plays a knight, some other co-star plays the Sorceress and Kiros and Ward will be playing the dragon. As the two of them go to put on their dragon costume we hear a loud scream coming from Kiros. Meanwhile they're starting to film. The director calls for the entrance of the dragon, a large and impressive Red Dragon appears on the Page 261

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 set, the director is very impressed with Kiros and Ward's work. Unfortunately for them, this is not Kiros and Ward's work, this is a real dragon, The director and co-star run off leaving Laguna to fight the beast. Kiros and Ward appear then together they manage to slay the dragon. When this is over there is a brief pause in the scene and we are taken back to the orphanage. Laguna is there talking to Matron, trying to find Ellone, it seems she was taken away by Esthar soldiers as some kind of new successor to Adel. Ellone's voice cuts into the scene. She says that Laguna went out to find her, and because of this, he wasn't able to be by Raine's side when she died. Raine kept calling out for him, but he was not there. She tells Squall that unfortunately she is only able to send him into the mind of someone she's met before, that she's sorry, but at this point she's going to have to disconnect. When Squall wakes up he's still there with Rinoa. He thinks that maybe if they go back in time something can be changed... Ellone, he's got to find Ellone. All he knows is that she is on the White SeeD ship, perhaps Edea knows where the ship is, Squall has to go and talk to her. She gives them a letter of introduction and tells them where they can find the White SeeD ship. When they arrive, the White SeeDs say there is no reason to believe the story and asks them to leave. Rather than leaving they check out the ship and finds Watts, one of the guys who helped setup the plan with the Forest Owls to steal the train car. Zone is there as well. He's very angry that anything happened to Rinoa, he told Squall to take care of her, but Squall explains that the reason they are here is to try and help her. They speak to the leader. It turns out the White SeeDs call Edea "Matron" as well and have ever since they were little. Even their salute is the same, the White SeeDs have quite a lot in common with Balamb Garden's SeeDs. The leader now trusts Squall after learning of what really happened, while it says in the letter they are looking for Ellone, unfortunately she is no longer here. When they Page 262

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 picked her up from Garden hear the FH coast, they wanted to get as far away from Galbadia as possible, but it wasn't long before they encountered the Galbadian fleet. They managed to escape but their ship broke down and they were stranded. Just as the Galbadian ships caught up, an Esthar ship appeared. A battle began between the Esthar ships and the Galbadian ships, they were caught in the middle of it. A number of Esthar soldiers came aboard the White SeeD ship and told them to evacuate. Of course they wouldn't, they didn't trust the Esthar soldiers. When the soldiers were leaving suddenly Ellone ran by. She yelled something and then she just jumped onto their ship. After that the Esthar fleet withdrew from battle and fled, to this day he doesn't understand why she did that. They believe that Ellone can now be found in Esthar. The only way to get to Esthar is to walk. From Fishermans Horizon across the train tracks. Squall chooses to do this alone, with Rinoa on his back the whole way. Squall approaches the train station on the Esthar continent where he finds Zell and Quistis. They say they are going to Esthar as well, they are Edea's escort. She is there along with them. She says that she wishes to go and see Dr. Odine. Ultimecia may take control of her again at any time, she does not want this, She wishes to rid herself of the Sorceress power. As they're going to leave, Selphie and Irvine show up as well. Selphie says that even though Esthar is on this continent, and supposed to be huge, she can't find it anywhere. Since Esthar doesn't seem to appear to the North or the South, the only direction left is to the East, past the Great Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake is just a barren ice land. A large undead monster awaits which they have to defeat before they go any further. When the party reaches a dead end on the edge of the cliff, something flashes in the distance, it's some kind of hologram. They climb up a ladder and go inside to find a huge technological area. The image of the Great Salt Lake disappears as the Page 263

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 enormous city of Esthar takes its place. The party is whizzed down through the city on a moving platform. When they come to the end Squall says to get ready, as they may encounter some resistance. Just as he says this, the three of them collapse into another Laguna flashback, bad timing on that one. The scene doesn't change much, still in Esthar. An Esthar soldier tells Kiros and Ward to go to something called the Lunatic Pandora. Laguna and presumably the other two and in some kind of prison. Laguna hasn't eaten anything in three days. The security guard says that neither he nor the Moomba who is there can have any food until their jobs are done. Laguna speks to the Moomba saying he's got to find a way to get him out of here. A guard runs into the room telling Laguna to go upstairs and get the other guards, there's some kind of emergency. Laguna quickly throws a tool to the Moomba but as he tries to catch it, the Moomba falls over and gabs onto the ledge. When Laguna helps the Moomba up, the other man in the cell tells him that he is a such a nice guy, and would make a good candidate for their leader. No one is satisfied with the way Adel is ruling Esthar, someday that will have to find a way to get her out of power. Suddenly the guard runs in and yells at Laguna for being lazy and not going to get the other guards. Laguna says that's enough and fights the Esthar soldier right then and there. After that it seems like they've already started their jail break so that might as well finish it. Upstairs, Laguna, Kiros and Ward overhear Dr. Odine talking about something to do with the Lunatic Pandora with his assistant. When the assistant leaves, the other man from the jail cell says he is a resistance member as well. The assistant explains that Dr. Odine has found a new toy he likes better than the Lunatic Pandora, some girl named Ellone. Laguna says he has to go inside and find Dr. Odine again to learn where Ellone is being held. After finding Dr. Odine they chase him out of the building. He yells out to them that Ellone is Page 264

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 in Odine's Laboratory. They head for the lab and fight their way through a number of enemies. Laguna uses a computer terminal to unlock the door leading to Ellone. He enters the room and she is there, crying. Laguna picks her up and tells he that he's here to rescue her, he came just like he said. The party wakes up back in Esthar once again, a car approaches the group. Squall says they want to go see Ellone, the man in the car says to go with him. They arrive and meet with Dr. Odine who says that removing Edea's powers should be no problem, he'll even let Squall see Ellone on one condition, he must leave Rinoa behind for now to be examined. The party is told to the Lunar Gate, everything should be ready for them to see Ellone by then. Arriving at the Lunar Gate, the man explains the whole process to them. They will be put in cold sleep and then into a capsule. The capsule is launched into outer space and they will be brought onto the Lunar Base. Squall takes Rinoa and one other person up into space while Zell takes the Sorceress to go and try to find a way to suppress her powers. Squall leaves in the capsule for outer space while Zell and Edea leave the gate. As they leave some kind of enormous structure begins to hover over Esthar. When the party arrives at Odine's Laboratory in Esthar he is talking to his assistant. Odine is wondering who could possibly be commanding the Lunatic Pandora to do this. The assistant says it must the the Galbadians as they were the ones who salvaged it. Zell comes in and wonders what's going on. Odine tells him the Lunatic Pandora is here, if they want to get onto it there's only to be a couple specific contact points as it passes over the city. Zell's group rushes out of the lab to try and catch it. They manage to get onto the Lunatic Pandora but are quickly thrown off by some kind of mobile attack robot. The Lunatic Pandroa passes over top of Tears Point' which appears to be reacting to the power of the Lunatic Pandora. Up on the Lunar Base they are preparing to receive the capsules Page 265

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 with Squall and Rinoa inside. A man in a space suit says to take care of it, he's going to go and check up on Adel. They arrive at the space station and Squall brings Rinoa into the examining room. After setting Rinoa down Squall goes to see Ellone. She thanks him for allowing her to see Laguna, she was unable to change the past but just seeing it enough. Squall wants to find some way to warn Rinoa, or anything like that, and asks Ellone to take him back into her past. Ellone says she can't do it for someone she has never met, but since Squall brought Rinoa with him they can go see her. On the way there, they stop in the control room. Something odd is going on with the moon. Tons of monsters are gathering together and waiting for their chance to move to Earth, the technician says this is called the Lunar Cry and that history is repeating itself. When the party leaves to go see Rinoa, something happens. A red alert is called, something is going on in the Med Lab, Rinoa's chamber has opened up my itself it seems. Squall goes to check it out by himself. Rinoa is walking like a zombie out of the room. He tries to approach her but is only knocked backward by some kind of powerful magic force. Rinoa goes into the control room herself and released the level one seal on Adel's tomb. While all this is going on, the Lunar Cry is beginning. Ellone says that Rinoa must be trying to release the full seal. The second seal is located on Adel's tomb itself. Squall goes after Rinoa, as he runs along the hall he sees the real beginning of the Lunar Cry outside the window. Monsters are gathering in an enormous group through a burst of energy which is slowly growing to connect the moon and the Earth, through the Lunatic Pandora at Tears' Point. Squall chases Rinoa into the airlock and puts on his own space suit. She manages to get through the gate before it closes, leaving Squall behind and unable to do anything. Rinoa floats over to Adel's tomb to release the seal, and is just thrown aside after that. Squall has no choice but to escape with the others. When he gets on the escape pod he yells Page 266

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 to Ellone, he says to take him into Rinoa's past, if she doesn't then Rinoa is going to die! The scene fades away, Rinoa and Irvine are in a Galbadian military vehicle. It's from back when the group was trapped in the D-District prison and Irvine came to rescue Rinoa alone. She convinces Irvine to return and help them. Next we see her asking Zell in the cafeteria if he knows where she could get a ring like Squall's. She doesn't want to ask him herself though, it's too embarrassing. Back on the escape pod Squall tells Ellone that she's going too far back, it has to be more recent. This time Ellone gets it just right, Squall sees when Rinoa collapsed just after they faced Sorceress Edea in Galbadia Garden. He hears something about the Sorceress being transferred into Rinoa, and about the answer being in the Lunatic Pandora. Squall teels Ellone that he saw what happened but couldn't do anything. She tells him what really matters in the present, she has finally realized that. She's going to take him to Rinoa's most recent past, as she is floating out in space right now. Her life support begins to fail and finally terminates, but she somehow remains alive... probably the power of love or something like that. Squall says he's going to go help Rinoa and rides the lift up to the top of the escape pod. Rinoa is floating toward him slowly in outer space however when he catches her, there's little her can actually do. His plan was not well thought out and it seems like all that is left is for them to die in space. Off in the distance something is spiraling toward them, a large red ship of some kind. The two manage to grab hold. It turns out to be the Ragnarok, some kind of special experimental sirship from Esthar. After defeating all the monsters inside and making it to the bridge, they find some kind of communication coming in. It's from Esthar, they tell Squall how to pilot the ship back again. They also ask if the Sorceress is on board, now referring to Rinoa who seems to have somehow gained those powers. They say Page 267

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 she will be seized upon arrival. Rinoa is scared of course, not knowing what to do... she doesn't want to go back. Upon landing Rinoa admits that Ultimecia will continue to use her to achieve her goal as long as she is free, so perhaps this is for the best. Squall gets back on the ship after she's gone and meets up with the part. Quistis tells Squall that when the escape pod landed, Ellone was just gone. Monsters have invaded the planet via the Lunatic Pandora, and Sorceress Adel is back as well. After everyone yells at him for going out of his way to save Rinoa's life, then just letting her be taken away, Squall thinks that about the only thing he can do right now is help Rinoa, he has to save her. Time to head for the Sorceress Memorial. They infiltrate the memorial and tell the scientists inside that they're taking Rinoa, even if they have to do it by force. After freeing her from the sealing pod, the group exists the building. They are surrounded by a number of Esthar Soldiers and a large man in a cloak who looks similar to one of the upper-rank members of the Esthar government. A large man who does not speak, he simply waves them by, Squall comments on how he looks quite familiar. It's quite obviously Ward, but it's not actually mentioned. Back on the ship Rinoa says she wants to stay away from places where there are a lot of people, some place like Edea's house and the Orphanage. They head back there, to a field of flowers where Squall promises to meet Rinoa again someday if they are ever separated. Zell has urgent news, he has to interrupt them. He has just received word that there is a new plan coming from Esthar to defeat Sorceress Ultimecia and they want SeeD to execute it. The person he talked to was a man named Kiros in Esthar, perhaps it could be the same one... Arriving at Esthar they meet up with the president and his two aides, of course it's president Laguna and his aides, Kiros and Ward. Squall asks Laguna to explain exactly how everything happened, he knows the story up to the rescue of Ellone in Esthar... then what? With both Adel and Page 268

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Odine interested in Ellone, they couldn't just pick up and leave. Odine was working on some kind of Sealing facility to seal magic, and Laguna owed a big favour to the Adel resistance faction. They moved the crystal pillar and dropped it in the ocean, but Adel found out something was a foot. They lured her to the sealing facility, Laguna said he had the culprit who moved the crystal pillar, and they were holding Ellone hostage inside. When Adel went in, they activated the seal and froze her up. Since they couldn't keep such a dangerous Sorceress around, they sent her into outer space. After that Laguna was set up as president, he sent Ellone back to Winhill but that was a mistake. Raine died and Ellone was sent to the Orphanage. As for Ellone, her parents were killed early when soldiers were on a Sorceress hunt. She was raised by her neighbor Raine who eventually died and she was sent to the Orphanage. Because of her special ability, Cid and Edea had a ship built to protect her which eventually became another orphanage where Ellone took care of the kids. She was on the ship for ten years until taken by the Esthar ship and brought to see Laguna in space. When she came back in the pod the rescue troops were late and she was taken by Galbadia, now she is in the Lunatic Pandora and they plan to rescue her as part of the plan. The plan works as follows. There is a Sorceress in the future named Sorceress Ultimecia. She is trying to achieve time compression. In order to get back into the past she is using something that imitates Ellone's powers, Odine explains that it is the machine he is designing now that Ultimecia must be using in the future. It must not be powerful enough and she is trying to gain control over Ellone so she can go back far enough to achieve Time Compresion. If Adel is possessed she will likely use her power and destroy Esthar as some kind of revenge... thing, so they'll have to have Sorceress Rinoa inherit her powers. They will go into the Lunatic Pandora and rescue Ellone while killing Page 269

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01 Adel, leaving Rinoa as the only Soceress and forcing Ultimecia to possess her. At that point, Ellone will take them both back into the past, into another Sorceress she knows, either Edea or Adel. When Ultimaecia tries to achieve time compression, Ellone will cut her off and somehow the party will be able to follow Ultimecia into her own world through the time compression. All aboard the Ragnarok now, even Laguna, Kiros and Ward have come with them. It's time to beak through into the Lunatic Pandora. They break through the shields and blast a hole in the side using the Ragnarok. Waiting there for them are Fujin & Raijin who they once again battle against and once again the two of them run away. Even after sending a giant robot after the party it doesn't stop them. Finally Fujin & Raijin turn to Seifer saying they can't follow him anymore, they wanted to help him achieve his dream, not watch as he just followed the dream of someone else. They leave and Seifer and Squall fight. Upon defeating Seifer, he grabs Rinoa and takes her away to see Sorceress Adel who is still sealed away in her tomb... and so ends disc three. __ |__ inal Fantasy VIII /-----------------------------------------------------o | ---------o----------\ Disc 4 | (000H4) \----------------------------------------------------o The battle with Adel is the first thing that occurs on disc four, even with Rinoa's life force healing her it makes no difference, Adel is defeated. This means it's time for Ellone to do her job. Rinoa goes into Adel's past and Ultimecia gets inside Adel. Time compression is about to begin, Laguna and Ellone run out of the room as everything gets wavy and the party finds themselves inside the room in Deling City where Edea first waited to give her speech. They pass through time to reach the future where Ultimecia's castle floats in the air just above the orphanage. Squall's group crosses some rather large chains to reach the entrance where they spilt to Page 270

two parties.

finalfantasyviii-walkthrough01

After going through the castle and defeating all of Ultimecia's most powerful minions to break the seal on their abilities they finally face off against the evil Sorceress from the future. After spouting her evil speech she attacks along with the ultra-powerful GF Griever. The two of them, even when junctioned manage to lose to the awesome power of Squall and the other SeeDs... and the rest. When Ultimecia is defeated they are left in the white with only the power of their thoughts and feelings toward a time and place they wish to return to. Through their thoughts it seems they can warp back to the real world through time compression, it seems far fetched perhaps, but I doubt anyone could adequately say what would really happen in a time compressed universe. Squall finds himself speaking to Edea, Matron, in the past. Sorceress Ultimecia appears but Edea says there is no need to fight, she is just trying to pass on her powers, and without having to burden any of the children with that, Edea says she will take on the powers herself. Squall tells Matron that he is a SeeD, that Garden and SeeD were her idea. Somehow it seems he is the one informing her about the whole idea she is supposed to have to train SeeDs to defeat the Sorceress. Being from the future of course, the older Squall does not belong and passes through time to return... Beyond this I'm not even going to bother trying to explain the ending, it's extremely weird and uses a few to many random video filters, but I'll leave you to watch it yourself and decide whether you like it or not.

He's a good man though, when the operation is finished in Timber he offers the last remaining train ticket out of there to Quistis and stays behind himself, she is forever thankful for that.
